Understood Chris. To Rocker though I would like to point out that I
didn't include the word incompetent in my message. If my message
somehow managed to make you feel incompetent, then I guess you read
more into my words than I put into them. But you must admit, there
has been some top posting here.

I must agree with you Chris. Not only did I invite anyone who was
interested to email me for the subscription information, but I even
deleted my usual signature so as not to advertise on this list. It
seems Rocker has some strong feelings, and not just about anything he
imagines I have done but apparently against those others he ranted
against in his post. I was surprised to see such venom in a response
to my offer to help out any blind or vision-impaired RB users. The
list exists and not all members on it have had any business dealings
with me. There are questions and answers on the list from the
perspective of a blind RB user that helps other blind RB users and no
ones arm is being twisted to join it.

I remember seeing someone else post something about why I didn't just
post the subscription info, and my response to that is that I just
schose to do it the way I did it but if you like, here's the
subscription information.
