I Before E, People....I Before E

There are a lot of links in this rejection:

Thank you for the opportunity to consider your work, but we are sorry to inform you that your manuscript was not selected as a finalist for the prize. As you know, we read a great number of quality submissions, and we hope you understand that we can only nominate a small fraction of those writers.

With your contest submission, you should have by now received a copy of our Spring 2012 issue of Arts & Letters, as well as the link to download the new issue of our digital ePub, Arts & Letter Prime. Just in case, here is the link for Prime 1.2: http://al.gcsu.edu/7pk8ia2z.php. And if you have not recieved [sic] Issue 26, please email us (al.journal@gcsu.edu) and let us know.

Your submission also gives you access to PRIME 2.1, coming in the fall, which you will be able to download here: http://al.gcsu.edu/52fq9iJ1.php. And next spring, you will receive Arts & Letters Issue 27, featuring the prize winning work from this contest, as well as access to the updated edition of PRIME 2.2. (Same download link as PRIME 2.1.)

Thank you again, and good luck with your writing.

Thank you for the opportunity to consider your form rejection, but we are sorry to inform you that your letter was not selected as a finalist for the prize. As you know, we read a great number of quality form rejections, and we hope you understand that we can only nominate a small fraction of those editors who can actually spell.

That was a very confusing letter. It's almost as if they're trying to hypnotize you into buying their sub-Prime magazine or something.

True. I made the mistake of submitting to a Narrative competition (didn't win, naturally) and now despite unsubscribing etc. I still get spammed by them. Adding insult to injury, I say.
