Very thoughtful and personalized rejection on my full, despite everything, it feels good to have someone say you're a great writer!

Pretty much the same form rejection as others--Liked the concept but didn't connect to the writing in the way he hoped.

Hilarious! Rejection in three hours flat. Very nice rejection to be fair though a standard one but three hours? I'm impressed...The submission form hadn't even left my screen.
