Most companies don't even send any kind of rejection notice anyway.

And yet the same people will complain that they never even heard back. Just get over it.

Tell that to the hundreds of CDers that come here complaining that employers are so darn rude for not sending any notice at all.

They wasted your time more than you wasted theirs. It takes much longer to apply for a job than to decide whether not to proceed.

Also, the whole premise is nonsense. If you go talk to a salesman about something, but don't buy it, nobody's time is being wasted until you keep going after you already decided not to buy.

Be thankful you GET one.

Most companies don't even have te common courtesy to send anything, and in those cases, I suspect the same people would then moan about how rude they are.

Lose/lose situation.

Then you are the first person in line complaining that you did not receive any notification in regards to your application and resume.
What exactly is going to be acceptable?

Actually I own my own business and I've not hired people because of their attitude while filling out the appplication.
I hate clowns no matter which side of the desk they are on.

I would rather receive the rejection email regardless. But yes, some of the extra canned verbiage in the emails can come across as insulting. The worst is when I was told the position was filled the very day after being told the next steps in the process, which would amount to at least a couple of weeks. They sent the wrong canned message. But whatever. I had my closure and moved on.

I have had two jobs where I originally got a rejection but they truly kept my application on file and called me. One case, they received additional budget and were able to add more positions, in another, the first choice person very quickly didn't work out and I was the runner up. I worked at one of those jobs for almost 10 years, and the other one for 5 years.

What they say in the rejection letter is not always a lie.
