Mike - what on earth ...??? One minute you're saying you're pleased with the response to this thread and now this!
Surely you've been around here long enough to know that introducing the subject of cats versus birds is likely to cause heated debate - those of us who like a nice friendly forum frequently raise an eyebrow whenever this controversial subject is introduced - but on the other hand it does get lots of posts on the thread, so if that's what you want ....
I think that what irks some is that you start a new thread and then disappear off the forum for 24 hours - then when you return you're unhappy with the way the discussion has developed.
I believe that if you felt able to contribute to the discussion, rather than simply make a statement in such a didactic fashion, you might find the whole experience of posting on the forum more rewarding.
