@breathsurgery: I don't think her rejection was unprofessional. Like @querier1234, it's on par with the other rejections I've received.

@breathsurgery do you mind if I ask why you thought it was unprofessional? I thought it was on par with other rejections I've had.

Found her form rejection referencing her "need to be extremely selective with the types of projects I take on" because she's "building her list" a little unprofessional. Found her second rejection of the same initial query months later to be even more so. Does not bode well for the folks who are privileged enough to be welcomed to her Extremely Selective List.
