Mark
I for one enjoy your posts.They balance the rest.And as far as I am concerned you are as high ranking as the rest of the people on this list serve.
What does it say when one very respected member of this community is pressured to be silenced ?
Although I am not a frequent lister or poster, I would hope that anything I do post would be met with respect.
If we cannot do that for all people and all membersthen we have sunk to a new low
And that makes me sad.
Freedom of speech is important. Whether you like it or not.
And no one is better than another in this life or in this hobby no matter your experience or your degrees.

I have been asked by high ranking members of the bird community to cease and desist from my rabble rousing and fun poking at the serious business of Connecticut birding. So, thanks to you who said you enjoy my posts but I am back on the sidelines until such time as i can not hold my tongue.

One last note...

From "A Man in Assynt
Norman MacCaig.

"...Who possesses this landscape? –
The man who bought it or
I who am possessed by it?

False questions, for
this landscape is
masterless
and intractable in any terms
that are human..."
