Peter, it's not about having something to hide, but rather that in some jobs there are some people who will intrude with unsolicited approaches, and will seek you out with inappropriate demands. It's not about being a birder, either -- it is that as a subscriber to birding-aus you become accessible via the net to the general public (if you give your full name, contact details, etc.)

This would also get around anyones concerns with privacy... (i dont see what people have to hide being a birder a high risk hobby???)

Re: [BIRDING-AUS] Un-named Observers

I do agree with this. Though my first name & initials are here, I
can't put my full name or contact details, as this opens us to
web-searching. Some of us work in businesses where this is not
                Of course people can invent a 'real' name...
