With all due respect to Russell's request, I don't think Ian May's will be the 
last word on this subject - not when Ian takes it upon himself to cast slurs 
such as "gormless wimps", "self-acclaimed experts", a certain "city-based news 
writer with a grudge" (I look forward to Greg Roberts' reply) and "faceless 
desk jockey(s)". Nor should it be.

This is a massively important issue; the most significant claimed scientific 
discovery in Australian ornithology in decades. So why shouldn't it also be the 
biggest topic to hit birding-aus in that time? Its veracity, and the ethics 
with which the claim has been documented, should be rigorously and publicly 
debated in my view - although all posters should also be aware of the legal 
concerns surrounding this case and choose their words carefully. Including Ian 

Those who are bored by the subject can always ignore the thread.

Cheers. Andrew
