Jerome Fine replies:

That is what life is all about - you win some, you lose some. (Humour!)

Actually, I am pleased you refused to ban Sellam - since I suspect that
having him is more of an advantage overall. In fact, a big advantage.

In closing, I also vote that Jay has the final decision on how to run
the list - since Jay has always shown reasonable judgement in the past.

And last, but again probably most, thank you Jay.
