G'day John (and other recent list joiners).

Never let the thought that someone might "bite your head off" deter you from posting a bona fide message to Birding Aus. The trolls and cave bears that lurk in news groups are virtually harmless [unless they know where you live].

The kerfuffles that go on in this newsgroup are like the waterfowl squarking on the duckpond. There is a flurry of flying feathers then everyone settles down as if nothing happened.

Regards, Laurie.

Well i seem to have started this ruckus so i thought i'd jump on the subject line bandwagon. My post re the BBBQ'S was vague in the directions department for two reasons. I was recently told about birding aus by a very good friend and have only been on the mail list for a couple of months. I regularly read peoples posts and due to lack of information on location end up having to google up more information just in case its close enough to get out there. I must admit i do find this a little annoying! At the end of the day as someone else has already said its only a couple of seconds out of my life, but i do think(Including myself on saturday) that a lot of people omit the finer details of there discoveries. Why Nikolas has decided to have a near on melt down over my post i can only put down to the bloke really,really,really wanting to see a bbbq. The second reason i was vague was although i was excited about finding these bird i didn't think it would generate all that much excitement. I new they were very unreliable outside of Inskip but i didn't know they were that rare around Brisbane. So i guess it was a bit of inexperience with both birding aus and bbbq's that caused me to get my head bitten off. I would like to apologise to all birding aus members one last time for not being "professional" when posting and want you all to know from now on i will include place,town,city,state and country. I am considering including planet as i would not want Nikolas boarding a space shuttle and heading for Mars........Regards John Hammond
