We develop an argument for the absence of spin-glass ordering in short-range vector spin systems with random symmetric exchange interactions in spatial dimension d≤4. The present argument supplements our previous theory; we consider the possibility of divergence in some correlation functions in the limit of small external field. It is also shown that the comment of Schwartz and Young on our previous theory is inappropriate.
