On the Rejection Message

The question is: are all rejection notices the same from a given publication? The Steiny Road Poet would love feedback on this.

For example, Steiny sent poems to The New Yorker on September 2, 2018, and finally got back an answer eight months later on May 6, 2019 which read:

Thank you for submitting to The New Yorker, and for your patience in awaiting a response. Although we won't be carrying your work in the magazine, we are grateful for the opportunity to read and consider it, and we look forward to reading new poems in the future.
