I got declined on 11/21 with no form saying that I was declined. I only noticed because I was trying to sync my queries to my profile. Either way, from what I've been reading and seeing in the comments, maybe I dodged a bullet.

Rejected after 32 days without even a form letter. I happened to notice in QT about two weeks later that it had been rejected, and wondered if I had forgotten I got a rejection letter from her? I checked my email, spam, nothing.

But when I looked at my QueryManager submission link, it seemed she just hit a button to reject my submission without even the courtesy of a rejection letter. I find that insensitive at best, and rude at worst.

New Leaf agents only showed up on Query Tracker a couple of months ago. Maybe someone needs to tell them how it works around here.

No real loss. It's clear that, like the others in this thread, I dodged a bullet anyway.

Anyone else curious about the small chunks of seemingly random query skips? I've noticed this in other agents' data too. Small batches of queries that just never seem to be circled back around to again, even when everything above and below it have responses. Starting to wonder if it's a glitch in the system, or do some agents just...skip some? Maybe to alleviate the workload?

I'd wonder if they are 'maybes' but it seems weird that that they would all come in small clumps like that, for the most part.
