Hi all

I wasn't getting "angry" with members who do nothing more than maintain a 
membership (sorry if it came across that way).

My comments were about people saying one thing and doing another:

(1)  the people who say "we" should do something about this (but they don't 
contribute to the doing)
(2)  the people who say "it would be good to promote birding to children more", 
ask for help on this but then don't take up
the very useful help that is offered.
(3)  the people who say "our club should advertise more" (but they don't help 
with the publicity effort)
(4)  the people who say "we" or "our club" should do more to encourage 
membership and promote birding (but they don't help
with organising field days, guest speakers for their club or other promotional 

I reiterate from my first email:  it is people's personal choice as to whether 
they contribute by action or not, but please
"walk the talk".

I object to this.  I am a member of Birds Australia, Bird Observers, ACF,
Greenpeace, WWF, WA Naturalists Club, Kimberley Society, Western Banders,
AWSG, SOSSA, etc.  The only group that I am ACTIVE in is Birds Australia.

So don't get angry with members who do nothing.  It is better that they are
a member than not at all.
