Sorry, I did wrote in a wrong way what I wanted to say: When reading
Dale's mail it sounded as if you two try to break a record who processes
most applicants. After rereading my mail I see that I did really
misformulate my mail: It sounds as if I disagree with your work. I didn't
want to say that you don't do good work or that you look after more
applicants than you can handle. I wanted to say:
It's good if we process many applicants as long as we don't forget that
quality is more important than quantity.
Sorry for this,
A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a
"Yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
