Neat. :) BTW, I took the liberty of adding links to your site to the Wikipedia articles on kangaroos and wallabies - your pictures deserve more exposure! ^^

Thank you, I've never done it myself, for fear of being accused of self-aggrandisement. It'll be interesting to see if it stays there; there seem to be a lot of Nazis at Wikipedia.

Unfortunately true, yes (and I say that as a long-term contributor and administrator)... but the page is certainly relevant and informative, so if somebody removes it, I'll argue for its inclusion - not because we're friends, but because I think it stands on its own merits and because I think it's very useful as "further reading" (or "further viewing", as the case may be) material for readers. :)

Thank you. It's not something I could do myself. *hugs*

You've empowered me to make my own minor changes to the page. We'll see if they survive. I don't know about you, but I don't believe in kangaroo cheese.

Well, you're the expert. :) But I definitely agree that this looks suspicious; I just checked Google, and literally *every* page that mentions this is a copy of the Wikipedia article on kangaroos, so I'm 99.9% sure it's made up.

And even if it wasn't, it still isn't referenced, and that alone is enough to remove the claim from the article; the criterion for inclusion in Wikipedia, after all, is not truth but verifiability (using reliable sources; naturally, this implies truth, but the opposite does not hold in general).

So... you absolutely did the right thing! :)

People are apologetic when they want to fanboy me for the site but I say not to be because I get it so rarely. I'm really glad that people have gotten something from the site. It makes all the work (and money) I've put into it worthwhile. Thank you.

(Wish I could chat with you online but I'm at work right now.)
