This listserv has entertained PLENTY of "not-quite-bird" or "indirectly about birds" discussions in the past. If you're not interested in a particular discussion, exercise your DELETE button. It's that simple. As lists go, this one is MUCH less subject to completely off-topic discussions, so please do not claim there is an "overwhelming volume of non-bird" discussion. That's patently inaccurate. If you don't wish to read or participate in a particular thread, use your delete button. As wind power and human impact on the environment IS very much bird-related in the end, please remember that discussion - dissenting or otherwise - is still acceptable and valuable. Thank you.

I concur with Margaret and Gerry. I was on the verge of unsubscribing because of the overwhelming volume of non-birding related discussions. Perhaps another list can be established for general environmental issues. Richard Taranto You are subscribed to VA-Richmond-General.
