Nudge with revisions: 8/8/2018. Responded to nudge and said she was still reviewing. Asked to see the revised version.
Nudge with second R&R: 3/15/2019. Heard back on 3/18 and she requested to see this new R&R version. Said she'll get to reviewing this draft soon and apologized for the delay.

sent nudge on 3/5/19, per agency guidelines suggesting one do so after eight weeks with no response
ER: 3/12/19 personal acknowledgement of nudge (thanked for sending, said didn't have the original query -- rest reads like form rejection)

I'm fine getting form rejections, but man, the "Dear Author" salutation where they couldn't even mail-merge my name feels really rude.

Couldn't tell if it was a form reject or not, as my MS hit specifics on her MSWL.

Took five months to reject my full manuscript with a form e-mail.

Not impressed.

UPDATE: Got an actual rejection 11/5/18, form letter

Website said to nudge/requery after 8 weeks, which I did with no response. It's now been 10 weeks, so I'm going to go ahead and assume it's a pass.

Not 100% sure if it's a form or not? She talked about my work and characters by name, but her comments were relatively generic, so it's hard to tell. I'll go ahead and assume it's not a form, though.

"Dear Author" form rejection. The worst kind.
