One was denied, if I remember correctly, very early in the 6bone process 5 
years ago. Several applicants had to do some more work to get their pTLA, 
based on comments.

I have been inclined to deny even accepting applications from a few, but 
was persuaded by comments, though it was by private email.

Others I have gently persuaded to withdraw their application as they didn't 
pass the criteria, IMO.

All in all it has been a useful and open process. By this I mean if someone 
does disagree with my pre-filtering, I will put it on the mailer and see 
what responses I/we get. I never unilaterally decide these things.
