somebody screwed up.

Yeah… It just came off as a small and petty. Anyway… I think I’m going to
hold off on joining. Who knows how many refugees from the old list will even
hear about the new one. I’m guessing at first anyway, the majority of folks
who join will be the same people on this blindtech and the other JFW list.
Seriously… To just blow it up like that without even a heads up. There were
probably a lot of folks on that list who need more help than others to find
their way. Just to cast them out like that… Messed up. I believe that David
guy is also a member of one or two other lists I belong too. Who knows if he’ll
interact with them or if it was an entire withdrawal type of deal.

Cristobal,

As so many owner martinets do!

However, it appears that someone promptly created a group here
on Groups.io that is the stub of a replacement. I am mentioning this only
because of this topic, which I believe is legitimate to discuss here: Jaws
Help Website

If there's a way to get at the help content historically
available, regardless of where it is, that's worth sharing in my opinion,
even on a "competing list" like this one. And I really don't consider the
lists in competition in any meaningful sense.

I'd love to see "blind technology" traffic become less
fragmented, not more, though there is definite room for separate lists for
things like JAWS, NVDA, Narrator, etc. I still, for myself, would prefer a
grand, unified "screen reader and blind technology" group myself, as there
is a lot of information on each of these that are completely applicable or
easily translatable to the others. But history often dictates structure,
and it sure does at the moment.

With list management software like Groups.io has, each user
can easily tailor their own experience even on high-traffic groups if they
wish to do so.
