Hi Folks

I. I am not a facebook user and I find this list immensely helpful and 
informative. Whenever I have need advise I have got it, and its been informed 
and detailed.  I am very grateful to Russell and any others who have kept it in 

2. Obviously, there have been the odd thread (perhaps even this one) that have 
gone on beyond their best-before date. But the subject line usually gives those 
away, and one can just delete them.

3. Equally obviously, there are a few "trigger issues" (bird banding + a couple 
of others) which arose passions and hence traffic with an unfavourable signal 
to noise ratio. I am astounded that (eg) posting trip reports has generating 
flaming responses, and am very sorry to learn that. Nothing remotely like that 
has even happened to me (even when I defended my cat ownership — a potential 
trigger issue). Some disagreement sure, but nothing at all lacking in respect.

So armed with my trusty delete button, I say "long live birding-aus", and 
thanks for the advice, expertise and good will I have experienced (and the 
blogs with the fantastic photos: keep posting those links), and I'll just edit 
into electronic oblivion anything else.
