Sorry, but I cannot refrain myself from writing this.

In the past days, I have read many messages similar to this one
(fellowship, board, committees, etc.).

My God: why do people think that just because they applied for a position,
they should be considered?

Believe me: I have been in many selection committees where we reviewed
applications that would barely pass even for positions meant to be filled
by secondary school students. We just thanked the applicants and informed
them that they have not been selected.

When I see some of the complaints on this list, well... let me stop here.
For now.
