I surrendered to the modern age only after a great deal of whining, moaning and complaining. Yes, I now take queries by email. Yes, I like the ecology of saving paper. Yes, I love the speed. Yes, I love the time savings.
No, I don't love the queryworts who haven't figured out "auto respond."
More correctly, I don't love the people who can't figure out when NOT to engage their vacation message.
Or why anyone would send out queries before leaving on vacation. And why they'd set auto respond for queries.
THIS is the kind of craziness that makes agents only respond to things they want to follow up on. I used to think it was rude to not reply to all queries. I've had enough auto respond this weekend alone to start rethinking that.
