Another sign of a form rejection letter

I mentioned one example yesterday. Today’s was for one of my novels (Impossible Takes a Little Longer) and it’s almost identical to the one I got a couple of months back: It’s a very competitive market, we can only afford to bring out outstanding books, and yours isn’t. Oh, and your mother dresses you funny. (OK, made up that last bit). Apparently this is the new “not suited to our needs.”
Hmm, come to think of it the fact the letter began with “Dear Contributor” should have been a tip off too.
On the plus side, they got back to me within a month, and I’ve had published take six months to give me a no, or decide not responding is sufficient.
