Well a lot of the blind did, but I also know of a few sighted people who don’t 
like the new system either, they can cope with it though, but they didn’t like 
the changes.  Those aren’t likely to leave though.  

At one time back in 2007 into part of 2008 I had an audio-pals group over in 
Google groups too, but with the mac couldn’t control the spam filtering system, 
so the bulk of our messages wound up being spam, so eventually just closed it 
down.  I would guess by now things have gotten better, but thought I would 
explore other options first thus wound up with emissives, and now also free 
lists.  Would hope since they are dedicated to mail groups, they should be 
pretty good at it.  Well that would be common sense, and I know common sense is 
melting away like a snow drift in the desert, but am hoping we are still in at 
least a slushy patch *lol*.
