Tyler lighten up!
If this had been a profound rarity, there would have been cause for your inflexible attitude, but that was not the case here!
There are few enough posts coming to MD Birding anymore as it is and if people perceive that every word of a text is going to be critically scrutinized they may well decide not to bother.
I can accept that you might have been confused initially, but i doubt it. I think you were just looking for an excuse to add the text that you have now done. What did you really accomplish by doing so?
