This is, for some reason, known on the internet as the 'Chinese Rejection Letter'. Perhaps because they are masters of diplomacy. It might work for rejecting photographs.

"We have read your manuscript with boundless delight. If we were to publish your paper, it would be impossible for us to publish any work of lower standard. And as it is unthinkable that in the next thousand years we shall see its equal, we are, to our regret, compelled to return your divine composition, and to beg you a thousand times to overlook our short sight and timidity."


Wouldn't call it diplomatic as only the extremely narcissistic could take it serious.
