Just FYI, this is a minority point of view, the (big) majority of DD's
seem to agree that sponsoring *is* a good thing, and it's even a
requirement to have a sponsored package in the archive while progressing
through NM.

Beauxir5, you are free to seek out whatever sponsor you like, you are
not forced to take the first offer (which isn't a sponsorship offer
anyway, just a request for adoption).
