I simply forwarded his first two emails with a request that an
intervention be made. I don't know what came of it - they may well
have intervened and not told me. All I know is he kept coming at me
despite my best attempts to ignore him. When he then submitted what I
would consider a fake review which would have to be counted in AFIO's
acceptance or rejection, I felt I was left no choice but to act in my
defense as otherwise my library could be rejected for inappropriate

(For the record, I can see given the reviews to date why it might be
rejected anyway, but that's not the point here. If it came down to
say a score of 3 in favour and 3 against and his review tipped the
scales to 4 against, that would be a big problem).
