I've been giving this proofreading issue a lot of thought. I would think most 
of the people on this list are dedicated, caring and loyal volunteers of 
Bookshare. Why else would we be on the list? To learn, to make our submissions, 
whether they are scanning or proofreading, the best they can be.

My suggestion is that membership to the list be a prerequisite for 
volunteering. That way, maybe the people who aren't reading would read these 
messages. I understand there are no guarantees, but at least there's the 

I've learned a lot from the list, gotten some good ideas, skipped some that 
didn't apply, saved many. I class the reading of this list as part of my 
volunteer time. If it were made mandatory for volunteers to be on the list, 
they may not read it, but would at least have the material laid out for them.

Ideas? Comments?
