Mundane & useless threads!
Mundane & useless threads!
Sun, 14 Apr 2013 20:06:10 +1000
Having been on this forum for only a few months and only relatively new to this
type of discussion, I find it some what childish and a form of bullying to be
constantly corrected on spelling mistakes or incorrect use of the "english"
language. The first thread regarding the night parrot or should I say the Night
Parrot was a great insight into the unknown world of this elusive and hard to
see species, and any sightings or possible sightings of this species would be
of significant importance to birding fraternity as well as other organisations
that would be interested.
However this thread has taken a back seat to the mundane and slightly "well
actually highly irritable" thread on the use of English language and the need
to have capitals or no capitals and the relevance to birding_aus members is too
me a little outdated.
Would it not be better to commend the thread and respond accordingly rather
than pick up on a small spelling mistake that is truthfully irrelevant to the
overall story, I have only posted once on here and the reason I have not posted
again was that every response bar one was only to correct me on my spelling or
misuse of bird names!
At present Facebook is alive with posts regarding how childish and irrelevant
the posts are on birding_aus and that most people have decided to not post or
at worse not subscribe due to the same bullying behaviour I experienced. I
believe that there may only be a small group of people actually doing this but
it gives the whole site a really bad taste in mouth.
If you were a new or inexperienced birdwatcher/ bird lover and stumbled across
birding_aus in the last week it would be some what amusing to see basically no
threads regarding birds but 50 threads regarding capital letters!
I understand my English isn't up to scratch and am expecting to be inundated by
abusive emails but I believe it needs to be said that if this continues the
amount of falloff subscribers will be greater than the useless threads about
the use of common names!
