Control Your Wrath, O Rejected One

The weather turned nasty out there, hurricane like last week. Maybe they shouldn't have rejected you so glibly:
Thank you for sending us your manuscript to the Antioch Review. The return of your work does not necessarily imply criticism of its merit, but may simply mean that it does not meet our present editorial needs. We regret that circumstances do not allow individual comment. The Editors

I don't see what's wrong with this rejection. If it is, in fact, being insincere, would you rather they told you what is likely the truth, i.e. your story is boring and sucks?
