I recieved this from Chip the other day. In view of the latest suggestion that
take charge of summaries, archives and indexes I would like to suggest Chip for
job. I am certain he would take it if the RAOU would pay his salary. You can
yourself what obvious talent he has.
ELECTRONIC CITATION - SUMMARY OF A RIVETING DEBATE
This is offered for anyone who has come in on this late. It will save them
wading through all those
multi-arrowed repetitions and hopefully get to the heart of the matter rather
quicker than any of the
Please bear with me if I misquote since I trashed all the electronic originals
the moment I read them.
MM went to the Murray Sunset and posted a very interesting list of birds. 2-6
Chorus ( pretending to be unimpressed )- How did the blackbird get there?
LC- Via the sprinkler system.
Chorus- Doom and gloom. This could be the end of the Australian megafauna and
Black-eared colour morph of the Yellow-throated Miner.
NM then rescued the Northern Territory by declaring it a Blackbird free zone.
But what exactly is
the Blackbird location, M?
MM- It's a bore. ( Well, no controversy so far. )
MM- Oh, and by the way. While my young son was swimming in the bore a Pallid
down and pecked off his willy.
HP- I'll pass it on to the Handbook Assembly Unit.
Chorus- Wouldn't it be better to reattach it?
HP- The information, silly. BUT IT WILL NEED AN ELECTRONIC CITATION.
MC- Can't be done.
HP- Can SO.
MM- Can NOT.
MC- Can SO.
MM- Can SO.
HP- Can NOT.
Chorus- Unsubskribe, unsubskribe!
MC - Well I can see that David agrees with me. ( Beautiful list of references. )
XX- Request information re major blackbird nesting event in Mallee. Plus very
fair price offered
for almost finished thesis on Blackbirds or similar.
So consensus achieved, business as usual. Oh, and Niv, you're quite right mate,
the answer is
definitely one thing or the other.
Now, in the unlikely event that this has ruffled any feathers, please remember
- this wasn't really
published so it didn't really happen.
