The hipocrisy of some literary agents... Per Writer's Market (and not to mention good ol' common sense), we must address the agent we're querying by name in our query letter. Several agents even state that if we do not do so, our queries will immediately go into the trash, unread. This is reasonable and a sign of professionalism. However, I've received (unfortunately) several rejection letters from agents where they did not do likewise; just a chintzy form letter addressed to "Dear Writer" or some such vague, impersonal greeting. I get that they're busy, but I find their hipocrisy to be very offputting. Why must they act like "royalty" when they'd be nothing if not for writers? They wouldn't have jobs if not for those who've queried them. What's happened to common -- and reciprocated -- courtesy?
