My apologies - David

Greetings. As the person who manages this mailing list on behalf of the
Committee of the Canberra Ornithologists Group, I repeat the thanks and I
have given to list subscribers, in the past, for the excellent use to which
they put the list. Unlike other mailing lists, and other forms of social
media, it is almost always characterised by polite and appropriate comment
and discussion.

I also use this opportunity to remind subscribers that the list has a few
simple rules. They may be found at COG’s website
 It might be good for
everybody to read them to refresh your memory about the conditions of list
membership, and related matters. The version currently on the website is
dated 20 November 21. It differs from the previous version in that it now
includes the clarification that ‘Potentially defamatory posts may be deleted
from the mailing list archive’. This reflects, in part, the implications of
the recent High Court of Australia decision about the legal responsibilities
of the owners and managers of online communication platforms.

With thanks, and best wishes – David
