Dear Birders

Most people think that birders are boring nerds,with no sense of humour
who spend their time creeping around in bushes with binoculars. Birding
is also thought to be a ridiculous activity for eccentrics and pseudo
scientists.  I am glad to see that Birding Aus is full of tension,
anger, interesting info on birds, birding, interesting bird reports and
now and then a bit of a laugh and proves that birders are all of the
above and more. . I do creep around bushes in Australia looking for
birds, I also have a laugh, I sometimes get pissed off but so what!!
I'm the one who started on about the Pom bit and it produced discussion
that showed that birders are not one-dimensional nerds but as some one
wisely said " don't take it so hard" so I won't.
What I'm getting at is that BA is a very interesting group and it should
not and will not be regimented by one group who think it should be a
certain way.
Most of those people dropping out need to stop overreacting and get a
new modem and a new server.
