Dear birding-aus contributors

Please be careful about including your personal details in messages to the mailing list. All messages are archived at and they appear as feeds on a couple of websites that I have no control over, such as

If you include your street address and phone number, etc, in your footer, then those details go online and probably can't be removed. Even if the owners of other websites that take birding-aus feeds delete the messages, the sites are archived by other sites, such as the very useful Wayback Machine, where you can see what almost any website looked like months or years ago.

People asking for info about forthcoming trips should be particularly careful not to disclose their home addresses: that's much the same as saying to the whole Internet "I live at ...... and I'm going to be away for two weeks from next Monday"!
