Dear Writer/s,
I loved your pitch and I am very interested in seeing more, but when I responded to your query I got an automatic email asking me to follow a link, fill out a form and then retype and resend my response. 
I must admit that I was a  little shocked that during the query stage of your career you have installed such a filter to eliminate spam. 
I received the following email when responding to your query.
I apologize for this automatic reply to your email.

To control spam, I now allow incoming messages only from senders I have approved beforehand.

If you would like to be added to my list of approved senders, please fill out the short request form (see link below). Once I approve you, I will receive your original message in my inbox. You do not need to resend your message. I apologize for this one-time inconvenience.

Click the link below to fill out the request: (LINK)

Now I understand that we all have spam and want to filter it out, believe me, I KNOW what you mean. But as far as I am concerned, this automated response IS spam! So while I did want to request more, I think I am going to pass. Please consider my silence an automatic rejection.
