Hi everyone

Thanks to all those contributors who write about BIRDS.  Lately any new 
subscribers could have been forgiven for thinking this was a literature 
discussion group or one where we talk about birders instead of birds ....

The occasional throw-away line or off-topic comment is OK - as long as we can 
ignore it after that.   If you want to pick up a non-bird topic, please do so 
privately with the original sender.  And please try to avoid public discussion 
of people  - list members or otherwise - and their good/bad points.  Join a 
philosophy or psychology list for that, (checking that your legal insurance is 
all paid up).

One last grumble  - please remember that messages of a commercial nature should 
not be sent to this list.  Sometimes there are grey areas, and I'm usually 
happy for people to inform us of trips they are getting together -  in order to 
fill remaining places, or to let people know about a once-in-a-lifetime 
opportunity to see a difficult species or region. But please drop me a line 
about it first.  Otherwise it is quite unfair to list members who ARE involved 
with commercial tour groups, and who send in trip reports after the event, but 
don't advertise the trips as such.

A little discreet information is usually fine- blatant advertising ain't.
