As a medium term observer (2008ish) and very rare contributor to the birds aus 
forum, I'd like to say that: 1) the patronizing (yes, it's the American 
spelling) behavior definitely exists; 2) it is by a minority of contributors; 
3) it is unpleasant and off putting, and I suspect not only to new comers; 4) 
is occasionally but not often enough, challenged by other members of the forum. 

My observation is that it is often about a contributor showing off more than 
anything else. 

I'm glad the issue was raised. This behavior does not belong here.
