I find it very interesting how things are so easily misinterpreted when
conversing electronically, particularly when the people concerned aren't
well acquainted.


I thought that I had merely asked a fairly innocent question regarding
making judgements about which bird was "better" than another.  I really
don't think I need to simmer down, if I simmered down any more today, I'd
be dead!  It was just a question and I took the reply in the friendly
manner in which, I think, it was intended.

Not to worry, twitchathons are meant to be fun.  However, I still suspect
that some underhanded dealings were going on here.   I'm convinced that a
secret ballot of all those attending on the day (of which I, unfortunately,
was not one) would have seen the mighty Regent Honeyeater carry the day.
