locked List Rules (was RE: Warning, political article link included, concerning Social Security for people with a disability)

C’mon y’all, we get a reminder on the first of each month what the list rules are… one of which is:

 

******

2: Stay on topic. We're a JFW-oriented list. That said, anything related to JFW, its functionality with programs etc is acceptable. If it doesn't have to do with JFW, it doesn't belong on the list. This includes, but isn't limited to, talk of other screen readers such as Window Eyes.

 

I would also add, as an admonition, that advising anyone to simply hit the Delete key shows disrespect for fellow list members.

There are other lists on which this material *would be appropriate. Many of us subscribe to such lists and don’t appreciate the cross-posting when said posting is outside the purview of a given list.

 

And now, I wish you all well.

Be safe

And there are people on this list, from outside of America, who are not in the least interested in what goes on politically over there.

This article has no business on this list. If a republican would have posted something pro Trump, everybody would be up in arms over it, but this was allowed. Doesn’t seem fair to me.

Political opinions have no place here. Just my two cents. Let’s stick to the reason for this list, and keep our political opinions to ourselves or at least on lists besides this one.

If you are receiving Social Security for a Disability, you may want to read this.
