Please stop sending me query letters

Dear folks who keep sending me their query letters: I don't do it on a regular basis. This is not usually a query-letter-critiquing website. You'll have to wait until the next time I feel like saddling up that particular horse and, until then, I'm going to politely ignore your emails.

How do we know when you're ready to "saddle up" again? and How do you "politely" ignore someone?
You've got 20 query letters on this section. How would someone know that you're currently "not in the mood"?

I always post something saying that I'm about to look at query letters and I'll take the first ten or twenty or however many it is. It's nothing to do with being in the mood - it's to do with time available. Critiquing query letters takes a lot of time, and it's not something I do during work hours.

yeah, it should not to do with our mood. It sounds unpolite. If it is yes, please not say out.

I was just wondering if by some crazy chance you are now ready to saddle up the horse?? :P I'm desperate if that makes you feel anymore obliged to do it?? Have spent way too much time on this thing and want your wise opinion before I take the plunge and send it!
