Greetings. Our list now has over 200 members and generally continues to function well, thanks to all subscribers including especially those who make regular contributions.

From time to time I send to the list a reminder about the list rules. We keep these to a minimum, but they remain important if we are to all benefit from and enjoy the list. Here are the list rules.

Messages sent to the CanberraBirds email list SHOULD NOT
* be of a purely commercial nature
* contain offensive or inappropriate language
* contain personal attacks - discuss the message, not the messenger
* stray too far from our main topics: the wild birds of the Canberra/ACT region, their habitat & conservation Messages, including attachments, should be under 100 kb in size

From time to time people advise me that they prefer not to see messages from particular individuals as they do not like the contents, or they ask me to ban particular individuals from the list. My standard response is that you can easily delete messages from those people without opening them, or establish a filter to send them straight to the deleted messages folder.

If you have any comments on this, pls respond to me directly rather than to the whole list.

Good birding!
