What a cop out.  Surely the words "NE Vic" would take no time and be a
courtesy to the reader.

In recent times, a number of members, especially those from Victoria, are
starting again.  I thought a reminder might point out to them their lack of
consideration to other members.  I never thought I would receive a reply
such as yours.  You still didn't have the manners to correct the situation.

No more bloodshed on Birding-Aus - please!!!!!!  I think we've all received the message about being geographically responsible long ago - but occasionally we forget.  I don't think we need another flame war over minor omissions of place-name netiquette - it's self defeating and contradictory after all .... and unpleasant for the rest of us.

Even Victorians can err on occasions! - because we naturally assume that the rest of Australia (and of course the world) orbits some arbitrary point in Central Victoria near Bendigo???!!!

[alert - the last sentence might have been intended as a good-humoured jibe - don't bother flaming me about it]
