Needless to say I share the opinion of the other TUs, so I won't
comment further on that.

Don't worry about being the sponsor, it could've been any of us. It is
nearly impossible for the sponsor to verify everything by himself all
the time as he might be busy with other things. As applications can't
put on hold for too long, that's where the rest of the group kicks in.

Rest me to say that I'm glad the discussion is over. I got a bit of a
sour feeling reading it.
