Bernie & Yong, Ignore them. If they want to skip your posts, they can.

It has always amazed me how hobbyists do exactly the same thing no matter
what the hobby. I am a serious Bob Dylan fan, and there are similar hostile
posts on the fora there. If i were still a serious stamp collector, I am
sure I would find them there as well. The few times I check in on the opera
fora, ditto. Something about hobbies that brings this out in some people.
(I was actually once bullied off of a Dylan forum on Facebook, and the
bully-er was eventually kicked off FB in response, and that, I guess was

So, again, ignore them and post away. I was unable to do much birding from
April-October b/c of some fairly serious knee problems (thank goodness,
resolved by surgery) so I became more dependent on this list than ever
before. And it gave/gives me great pleasure...

Best to all, Michael
