A friend of mine told me on the phone yesterday about the best rejection he ever received; I made him swear he was going to send it to me via e, but I should have made him triple swear. He said it was from a literary magazine, and would look to see which one, but here's what it said: "Nope." Just a single colloquialism. Have you ever? I do not even really mean that rhetorically: have you ever gotten such a decisive turn down? Personally, I think it's rude.
