You appear to be incorrect here. Discussion of cats in relation to birds is prohibited on TWEETERS, and has been for many years. This followed several angry exchanges between cat-lovers and cat-haters. It is a subject which is best avoided on any birding e-mail group.

And the problem is? This is carrying touchy-ness to the extreme, it seems to me. I follow both OBOL and Tweeters, and this is the kind of discussion that never would occur on Tweeters. Nobody would think of it.

I think Wayne’s approach is right. Fine to refer people to the article as Noah is One of Us. This is his first-ever article for NG and is thus a big deal for the Oregon birding family.
Cats and falconry are topics excluded from OBOL because they will start endless, er, catfights. Thanks for respecting this custom.
