Hi,
I believe that putting the cost of an SMA toward something they have been
avoiding (in a very disrespectful manner) is rewarding bad behavior. They
have taken plenty of money on an annual basis and been treating customers as
non-entities since well you fill in the version number.

OK.
The idea of sacrificing one SMA was really to underscore the seriousness of
the petitioners. I admit it may be beyond what is essential.
It is one thing simply to sign a petition. Pretty much anyone can do that,
but if users are so serious about the situation that they would willingly
pay one SMA just to get what they should have been delivered anyway, that
sends a powerful message. If you were going to buy a screen reader for the
first time or even if you were recommending to an agency the screen reader
to endorse, wouldn't you hesitate to go with a product with users in revolt?
Well, that's the idea. Right now, JAWS is the only screen reader that will
do what I need done, and I'm grateful for that. It is just ... Well I've
said it already.

Making the SMA sacrifice a part of the petition was just an idea. I regard
it as optional. Remember, I'm inviting comment, and I appreciate yours.
