To all the Birding-Aus Community:

Could I remind everyone who reads Birding-Aus, either by subscribing to the 
mailing list, or on the web, or on the archive, that it is an offence to send 
an email message pretending to be somebody else.  The seriousness of the 
offence depends on the jurisdiction of the sender's home state or country as 
well as that of Victoria, where Birding-Aus is served from, and may extend to 
the local laws of the individual impersonated.

Somebody sent an email message to Birding-Aus yesterday, pretending to be Peter 
Waanders, and saying some rather offensive things.  I havne't spoken with Peter 
as yet, but I imagine he would be embarrassed by this message, although we all 
now know it WAS NOT Peter Waanders who sent it.  I can prove it wasn't Peter, 
but I won't say any more for now.

I will do everything in my power to track down the culprit.  I assume that 
Vicnet will assist me in this, and for the first time ever I would be quite 
happy to see legal action result from a Birding-Aus message.

DO NOT impersonate anyone else on this list - it is cowardly, despicable, and 

Can we have no further comment publicly on this matter please as it may well 
have repercussions - if anyone can give me further information or expertise 
then of course I would be grateful.

Thank You
