G'day all,

 When unsubscribing from Balanagara you're not actually unsubscribing from 
Birding-aus (the bulletin board), you're unsubscribing from a personalised 
mailing list called 'Birding-aus" created by someone at Balanagara Films as a 
way of raising revenue for 'The Message of the Lyrebird'. The person who did 
this simply neeeded to collated an emailing list from those who subscribe to 

 It seems that Balanagara Films, like another commercial company (who have sent 
nearly 500 direct marketing emails to birding-aus), have recognized the 
potential to make money from target marketing (whehter directly to the list, or 
indirectly) birdwatchers who subscribe to Birding-aus.

 That being said, Balanagara Films is a genuine project (and they may indeed 
make a good film), however the method of marketing is sneaking and commercially 
orientated. Let's hope they don't resort to bullying anyone who objects to 
there commerical marketing (both online and offline), like the other commerical 
company is doing to those who subscribe to Birding-aus.
