The Rejection that Dare Not Utter its Purpose

The person receiving this cryptic rejection from the Santa Monica Review writes: This one really bugs me.. because, as you'll notice, they never actually get around to rejecting me.
Dear Writer: We don't know of anyone who hasn't had work returned at one time or another, but that certainly doesn't make it easier. We hope you will find consolation in the individuality of editorial tastes and in the assurance that with persistence, good work will be recognized as such. Thank you for trying us. The Editors

The writer should write back saying thanks for accepting him as a client -- like that time on "Seinfeld" when George wasn't sure if he'd been hired or not and decided just to show up at the job!

Easier for whom?
