Very well said and I agree with every word.

It is very disturbing, frustrating and actually infuriating to read that "press 
release.” How does, or can, anyone forget who found the Night Parrots in the 
first place? How, and to what end is this seemingly continuing misinformation 
(or out right omission) of John’s accomplishment being spread?
I may be naive, but I honestly don’t get it.
