Competitive and Thorough

Lest you think they at New Plains are blowing their noses on your 2,500-word story.  It makes you want to be a part of the process, doesn't it? Do they pick the story they want to publish and then arm wrestle to see what goes in the review? Well, anyhoodle, at least you have been thoroughly vetted and tossed aside. GFY.
Dear Writer: Thank you for sending your fiction for our consideration. After a competitive and thorough review process, we have decided not to use your material in our upcoming issue. We wish you the best of luck in all of your future endeavors. Sincerely, Kellea Ingram, Editor in Chief, New Plains Review

GFY: good for you, or go f*** yourself? Inquiring minds want to know.

I meant the former, but the latter does also seem to apply in an ironic way. I'll leave it to your preference.
