I don't post often because I don't get out in the field too often. I do appreciate everyone else's posts as they do occasionally get me out to see something interesting.
Several years ago I was attacked privately by someone who didn't appreciate my asking for help in ID'ing a Phoebe. Actually brought me to tears. I was going to quit the list but instead forwarded the emails to Laurie and the other List Admins. Their action was swift and justice was had. The Admins thanked me for bringing this troll to their attention and assured me I was completely correct in my use of the list.
My hat is off to our tireless Admins who work to protect us and occasionally tweak us if we stray too far afield. Thank you!
I look forward to meeting you along the Raritan some day Bernie. Til then, post away!
