Frankly, what was the point in me contacting you off list if you feel
you needed to repeat everything we discussed on-list.

To clarify: I don't think I was a little harsh. You admitted to thinking
your thread was off-topic, so I said in seeing that you seem to admit to
intentionally starting an off-topic thread, I would like you to explain
why you've done so because I feel I would be warranted in recommending
you for moderation, as intentionally and admittedly ignoring the
guidelines is a reason for this. This is not a harsh action, because I
gave you the opportunity to explain and did it in private.

As it stands, you made it clear you thought the thread was off topic,
you made it clear you thought the problem was about Jaws and not
Rockbox. So while it relates to the Rockbox website, it relates in the
same way as a broken release of Firefox relates to Rockbox in that you
could view the Rockbox website through it.

As long as you think the problem is with Jaws, which you clearly do, and
not Rockbox, the problem should've been addressed on a Jaws mailing list.
