(This is upsetting. Mostly because this is a form and no real specific editorial comment was given. And I used their submission form online and they want to know if they should return it or shred my email?–showing me there was not much thought to this email.)

That’s the fastest response rate I’ve ever seen from a publisher. I think you should as them to return your ms.
I agree. I would ask for the manuscript back.
