Uhm, that's not what I said Robin. I wrote:

I guess you didn't read to the end of my email?

(Full disclosure, I started the email with a rather poor attempt at
humour - I did the same for sjgadsby earlier this week which he caught,
and I apologise to Robin that this one was too credible to qualify as
the outrageous lies it was).

In the meantime, I will consider your candidacy valid until (as written
in the rules) the council or the community manager tells me otherwise. I
don't think that your omission was a major error. My response to your
query, however...
