I know I have unintentionally misspelled bird names when posting in the field. Sometimes you just want to get the information out there and you are trying to text on a tiny little phone.
I also know an ornithologist who uses "shorbs"
I find this perfectly acceptable and knew exactly what was being communicated when I heard it the first time. I'd hardly call him sophomoric.
Personally I don't find Shaun's response any more inappropriate than the original posting.

There's enough crabbiness on Facebook.
Keep this site positive please
