You naughty spammer you!!!  You'll be struck off the Register and condemned
as a vile heretic.  No doubt even burnt at the stake of Cybernautic Purity.

>I'm not a BirdInfo shareholder - just a happy customer ;-)

Yes, I know, what a feeling!  Beats Toyota any day!!  Been using BirdInfo
myself for a number of years now - and I chose it in preference to a number
of American databases on offer at the time.

>That should bump the thread off on to a new level of vitriol and partisanship

Why haven't you used a terminal full stop?????????  
Or should I say "period"? :-)

God preserve you from the Michaels of this world.  Oops, sorry, that's
Pommie English. I believe that in Strine English that should read "Nigels"
but then my Australian English has never amounted to much - with sincere
apologises to all Michaels (as indeed to all Nigels).


PS What's vitriol?  A sort of lavatory cleaner?  Or an oil-based lubricant
for budgies with dandruff?
