Re: [Symbiosis, Dinosaurs and Birds]

Well since I seem to be ranting off, I might as well stick my two cents in as
well here.

I agree whole heartedly with the below post as well. More often than not (or
at least since I've been on the list) many posts degenerate into talks
regarding birds only.

I mean regardless of what relationship birds have with deinos, it would be
nice if we could keep these posts more deino related and less "evolution of
flight and diversity of avians."

OK that's all
