No, I don't think this is acceptable and I'm working on getting this
changed. At the same time, please don't accept miracles/panaceas

The DAM has the exclusive power to create and remove accounts. It is
up to them to make a decision who should receive and keep accounts.

I'd have to guess, but perhaps a reason is that he doesn't perceive
the discussion as helpful. (Note that for example that while adding
DAMs has been suggested nobody has yet posted a list of prospective

In any case, applications will be processed (and some rejected, I'd
assume) once db.d.o is up again.
