[bksvol-discuss] Re: the adult content issue and check boxes

What evidence do you have that Bookshare is in noncompliance with the terms of the grant? This is a pretty serious allegation to make. Unless you have some supporting facts, you should retract it.

I have remained as silent as I possibly can since my voice is just coming back after three weeks of pneumonia, but the whole argument is making me very, very angry. If laws need to be repealed, this is not the place to argue it. It is one thing to call attention to the fact that someone may want to work with you on the issue given a specific opportunity, but we really should not have this battle here.

As to the adult designation, since it is a stipulation of the grant, then Bookshare needs to decide if they really want to grant or not. It should not be in our hands as volunteers to decide whether they comply with the grant or not. Frankly, I am so there irritated about the whole thing that I'm half ready to report the lack of compliance to the Department of Education, even at the fear that they will then reject or rescind the grant for noncompliance.

I'm sorry you don't like the agreement that they reached with Bookshare, Roger, but if you don't like it, this is not the place to change it. If you do not like the rules by which Bookshare must follow to comply with the grant, then put your efforts elsewhere. These educational grants were big-time money for Bookshare and have allowed for the enormous expansion of the collection. With that opportunity and financial assistance came responsibility and restrictions. Again, this list is not the place to debate whether we like them or not, but with the people who signed for the terms of the grant.
