Our Search Committee for our advertised positions has met and, with difficulty, made their decisions. I am sorry to have to report that you were not selected. That in no way implies a negative judgment of your talents, accomplishments, or promise in philosophy.
Seriously? Your stone cold rejection of me in no way implies a negative judgment of my talents and all that other shit? So, like, I could be the next fucking Saul Kripke (except, you know, without the panty sniffing), and you still wouldn't say, "Fuck it. We can get an ethicist next time around"? Seriously?
