Hi Chip I understood what you said and that is what I am going on. I think that Darla is behind on her emails.

Get well soon,
Victoria

The thing is, if I threw people off each time they made a mistake, I'd soon
be talking to myself <smile>.

so, the only thing I can reasonably do, is to explain to people what they
shouldn't put on the list, and try to get them to follow the rules.

Yes, if someone is bothersome or obnoxious enough I will ban them from the
list, but you know, that's never happened. almost everyone, after a little grumbling that they can't post whatever they want, settles down and follows
the rules.

we've had a few people go off in a snit, for reasons they wouldn't give, but there's not much I can do about that. the rest of us are still benefitting
from being able to talk to one another, and that's what matters.

Chip

Dear Victoria,

Sadly, we have some adult children on here; nobody minds a bit of banter,
but I can do without the sarcasm, and were I chip or Jennifer, a few of
these folks would be gone because Chip isn't only the moderator, he owns the
list, in effect.

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.

 Chip

   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.
   Victoria Britton
