Got a rejection from an assistant instead of the agent I queried. Asked if it was ok to query another agent at that agency or if they had a no from all policy, was told it was ok. I sent an email to the other agent and INSTANTLY got a "We are too busy, don't call us we will call you email". An email I did not get the first time I queried.

Out of curiosity I fired off a third query for a separate project from a different email account. No instant message back about being busy.

Looking through the comments it seems this is common practice for this agency.
