Hi Ike!

I didn't get you by your name but by your nickname, oh yeah, as Allan
said I had a good memory about you, so this is good ;).

About this, as an ex-TU and ex-DEV I thought for Devs this should be
unnecesary, I mean Trusted Users are Trusted by the community but
first by the Devs (or nobody of TU would have access to our servers).
So if we trust you, and we doesn't oppose against your decitions of
who bring to the TU land, why TUs have to untrust Devs? IMHO TUs
should trust devs by default, and that means, no complains about TU
applications, have more sense to me. But please, I don't want to start
a debate in this thread, I don't was to make noise on the Ike's
application, if somebody want to reply me about it and start a
brainstorming, discussion or whatever please do it other thread.

That said, good luck with your application Ike, you have been an
impressive work and you're a good candidate.
