As others already pointed out, the solution is "Mute this topic", much
easier and quicker than counting over 50 messages 😂

That's the big problem with this list.  Most discussions lately have
been about anything but JAWS.  I counted over 50 messages in the thread
about audio description.  And the list owner, if there is one, has never
responded to inquiries about how this list is run.  Personally, I don't
care whether members go off topic, and I usually enjoy reading these off
topic messages, but I think the list owner, if there is even anyone in
charge, has a responsibilty to clarify wheterh this is permissible and
even consider changing the name of this list to reflect its more general

Most discussions are about JAWS but for those discussions that truly
bother you just use the mute option

It only requires you to be flexible

I am confused.  I thought this was a list for the discussion of
issues related to the JAWS screen reader, but lately, there have
been long discussions about topics that have nothing to do with
JAWS like headphones and audio described programming.  Is this
list now a general forum for the discussion of any topic related
to blindness? Could someone please clarify the purpose of this
list?  And if this list is now indeed a general discussion
forum, would it not make sense to change the name of the list to
reflect this?  Thanks.
