Then the only thing i can say is: I'm sorry i did not participate in the 
discussion. I only had a positive idea about graysky, nothing more 
nothing less.

I'm also surprised he did not make it in. I'm also sorry for that.

There is nothing else to say now: better luck next time, i will be happy 
to see you (graysky) re-apply for TU. Please do.
