That seems odd to me, too. Of course, this is my first results season where I have a horse in the race, so maybe I'm just ignorant of how things go.
There are 40-odd responses on Duotrope, and the figure I read is 10 - 12 entrants who are not on Duotrope for every one response who is. So that's 400 - 500 responses so far. Maybe we're only halfway through the results? Maybe HMs are coming out all at once at the end instead of together with Rs?
Maybe I should stop obsessing?
I ran the numbers again based on today's most recent Duotrope results. The bottom line is that I think we are about 30-50% through with the rejections. You can find all of my statistical procrastination and torture here:
