Hi all

I won't get dragged too far into the banding war today - but I could say plenty in support of both cases. Perhaps it's an almost necessary evil?

Anyway, what I really wanted to say was:

I don't really care what name people go by on this mailing list - there's nothing to prove who I am, even if I give my name. It is very easy to pretend to be someone else on the Internet - of course, it is very hard to completely cover your tracks, too.

However, I would rather people give THEIR name if they are prepared to use somebody else's in their message - this seems fair doesn't it?

Now let's talk about birds again, please....
