    Where they can get flooded out instead.

    You really are a pig-ignorant moron with the sensitivity of a rock.

    What would you prefer?
    Announce my concerns for the poor buggers in photographic newsgroup?

    Not that it's any of your business but I showed my "pig-ignorant" attitude
    with my cheque book, not in some God forsaken newsgroup inhabited by trolls
    and stalkers.

    How much did you donate to the appeal?

    Presumably, your chequebook is for assistance in FNQ -
    rubber floats doesn't it?

    The day one of my cheques bounces is yet to dawn Dougie old boy. Although I
    must admit, it was stretching thin when I paid for the D90s and the extra
    lenses then sent a few grand south.

    How much did you give to the appeal Dougie? Or does your charity start and
    end at home?

    Geeze, no need to get so defensive. You made a comment that
    was begging for a comeback, so I gave it, totally tongue in
    cheek. I haven't a clue on the health of your finances nor
    do I really care.
    I don't feel the need to brag about making donations. But
    since you will try to say that means I haven't made any, I
    will say that for the last 7 years at least, my total
    charitable donations have represented a double digit
    percentage of my pre-tax income, and am on track for similar
    this year. Whenever I receive income, a portion is set aside
    for charitable donations - regardless of whether there is
    some specific cause or not.

    So although I have not donated a huge sum specifically to
    the bushfire campaign, I would be pretty confident in saying
    that many of the organisations that were able to start
    helping people before the official appeal was set up, were
    able to do so partly because of previous donations I have made.
