The only American surnames might be Red Wolf or White Cloud, possible native American Indian names.

Exactly, that was why I objected to someone with a sir name that indicated they came from immigrants, complaining loudly about other citizens who perhaps did not have an U S name. I guess I live in my own world, I treat everyone or try to, equally.

What exactly is an American sir name? The United States just as Canada and Australia is a country made up of immigrants from around the world and just because the Mayflower carried the first colonists, not all American names are Alden, Brown, Allerton or Bradford.

Because one of the chronic complainers on this group about posts being off topic  was the first one to rail against Non U S citizens on a windows group, yet he himself does not have an American sir name.  Is that not hypocritical? Some people live to cause controversy and are quick to tell mods what they should be doing. If I don’t like a thread, I hit the delete key.

Why can’t we all be more tolerant and less worried about posts that are posted too this list.  After all, aren’t we here for the purpose of providing help to each other when its needed? I know that I myself, has benefited from all of the help and advice and suggestion from other users of Jaws.

I 2000 percent agree with you Gerald. Oh and why do we never ever hear from the owner of this list? Boy I miss Rick's old JFW list. If this behavior continues I'm going, going, gone! Their is a FB JAWS group on FB that I like so if you happen to see me their I'll do my best.

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.
