  Thank you very much for your response. Now I see why some people have 
unsubscribe from the list. This is my honest opinion.

    ok, it's hard to give you an exact answer.

    no religion, and no politics of the form where you say "my guy is better 
than your guy" or "my party is ok and yours stinks".  these are subjects sure 
to get people upset.

    so, what is allowed?  it's supposed to be issues of interest to the blind 
of tallahassee; I stretch it a bit and say something of interest to blind 
people or people living in this area of florida, either will do.

    every time someone posts something that isn't on topic, you better believe 
I get a lot of complaints; this includes unfortunately, health tips like 
Charles just posted, or humor, which others have done in the past.

    before you post something ask yourself if it's related to living here, or 
to blindness, and will it cause complaints.

    it's easy to think the complaints are coming from really irritible people, 
but often they're coming from people with very low levels of sight, where it 
might take them several minutes to read each message.  then they get really 
upset if it's something they've think is off topic, because it cost them a lot 
of effort to read it.

    thanks for asking, now, before each post, you can try and judge is it 
really that important to post whatever it is, or is it something better just 
shared with a few friends.

      Hi, Chip
      As a subscriber to the list I would like to know what subjects are 
permitted and what is not. Is it alright to allow
       some humor every once in a while. I was told that the list was for blind 
issues and some I have seem to me are about politics and a lot are very 
informative and also some have posted items for sale. I want to know because 
once I posted something's that you said was not allowed.
