Rocking the Passive Voice X

I can still get a little overwhelmed at just how many of these things I have:
I regret to inform you that the position in philosophy was offered to another candidate and that person has accepted the offer. We do not anticipate another opening in the near future.

It's one thing to get a rejection from a good, or even passable department. But so many of them, like this one, come from nameless little shit holes that no one's ever heard of in the middle of nowhere. God damn.
