From the most recent several weeks of slush encountered, here are some random facts.

Longest read before a no: 70 pages

Shortest read: 3 paragraphs.

Most common reason for rejection: lack of interest in the main character.

Second most common reason for rejection: Unsupportable plotting quirks.

And yes, I'm still bemused by people who send me query letters via the contact form. Especially since this is directly below the contract form:
Any one who attempts to submit or query through this form will have their email address banned across the whole domain.

And of course it is nearly always for something I don't represent in the first place.

Facebook's current terms of service give them the right to do what they wish with any content you post for as long as you leave it up. This means your stories, pictures, wall conversations and comments on other peoples notes. I've already stopped feeding my LiveJournal into Facebook and won't restore it until they have sensible, and non preadatory TOS's. More here.
