I'm not hiring anyone. I'm just saying I understand a non-answer to a "Is this job still available?" email. To me the person is simply asking, "Do I REEEALLY need to fill out an application, or do you already know who you're hiring?" Maybe I'm misinterpreting the rant, but I didn't take it as someone who had already interviewed for the job, or even applied. There I totally agree that some notification is warranted.
Thank you for applying. The position has been filled. Good luck in the future.

That took less than 30 seconds. Copy and paste and it will take even less time. Unless you are literally getting 1,000's of applications, you are not going to "spend hours responding to every single email inquiry". Stop making excuses and just show courtesy towards people.
