It's kind of a drag to send off a story and get a form letter email a few months later with the "not right for us at this time" thing and "feel free to submit to us again." (So you won't call the FBI on me? That's kind.) These are the publishing world's equivalent of "keeping your resume on file".
I was disappointed but, in this case, not too surprised. The submission guidelines specified that the text of the story were to be embedded in the body of an email. Now there are outlets, I'm sure, that have reason to be paranoid about attachments: viruses and the like. _______ might probably have their reasons. But the truth is that manuscripts just look better in, well, manuscript format. And in the body of an email you lose a lot of that and everything gets squished together.
So, I'll be looking for an alternative in the next couple of days.
