Preemption (or I Admit I'm Probably Using That Word Improperly)

Dear Stuart,

Thank you for preemptively declining to be on the Editorial Board.  It is true that the Editorial Board--or as we privileged members call it, the Showboat--has grown wildly and is now an unwieldy bunch of hooligans (no offense to any particular Board members--you know who you are).

So it is with great relief that I accept your declension (I admit that I'm probably using that word improperly).   I hope you are not worried that I have just accepted something.  Our founding principle at JofUR is to reject all submissions.  Other things (such as subscriptions) are gladly accepted.

Best regards,
