Thank you David James.

I have been sitting here (as it were) becoming more and more agitated, frantic, 
despairing, confused, annoyed, thinking of a large brandy as I have been 
reading all these postings about the various taxonomies that various birders 
are using for their own esoteric reasons while, at the same time, wondering 
just what Birdlife Australia is thinking.
I wait with bated (which my much loved and ancient Chambers Twentieth Century 
Dictionary tells me is the same as “Abated” meaning “to lessen; to deduct from; 
to mitigate; to put an end to [I like that one], do away with, as of an action 
or a nuisance, to render null, as a writ”)  breath to see the “explanation to 
the introduction about why BARC uses the IOC checklist for its purposes”.

I am also trying to visualise those hardy and much admired soles who are 
currently working on (at least, I am hoping they are still working on) new 
“Australian Bird Field Guides” but wondering which taxonomy they should be 
using. Poor soles. My heart goes out to you.

I could go on but ............
