    No, it is not grossly unfair.  I did not cite numbers any more than I did
not.  It was left up to the individual who read it to decide for themselves
what those numbers were.  I can, however, prove that one person has been told
that they would not be accepted if they applied.  That person is me.

    So my statement is accurate and not a "gross" misrepresentation because,
as stated, no numbers were given...  Malformed hand or not.  :P
