A Question and a Good-Bye

Does it count as a rejection if a magazine to which you submitted a story closes down before they get back to you with an answer?

Atom Jack Magazine closed, which is a shame, as I thought they printed some dang good stories (and available for free, even). I was obviously not exactly a regular reader, though, seeing as they announced the closure in December and I didn’t notice until now. (I submitted my story in November… I just thought they were taking a while to respond!)
