Can Bjoern not speak for himself? 

I think you should step back and let him speak deal with this.   I wasn't a DMB member when he applied before,  but I am now.  The fact that people (who,  by some amazing coincidence, all work for the same company) keep harassing the DMB about this makes me approach his application more skeptically.

I understand you think he should have been approved before. I think everyone understands that.  No need to keep bringing it up.
