Good idea, I see now from reading further posts that the jiffy proofers are a 
real problem. That's too bad as they're just putting a bunch of potentially bad 
scans into the collections. Okay, so we on this list proofread them so they're 
not horrendous, but that doesn't mean that they won't have problems because of 
someone's neglect.

  Hi, List.  Skeptic here.

  The "jiffy proofreaders" won't be stopped unless someone reports them to
  that "volunteer@bookshare" or whatever address EVERY TIME they "jiffy proof"
  a book.  And then, as Pavi said, first they'll get a letter, next perhaps some
  credits deducted. It's going to take some heavy-duty reporting on them to get
  them truly "outta here" for good.

  Speaking of "outta here," has anyone had a problem with a "downloader and
  releaser" with the initials PM who just seems to be building her own little 
  off of other people's "Holds"?  I did, reported it, and I don't see anyone 
  about her, so maybe she's okay now.

  But, again, I stress that the "jiffy proofreaders" need to be reported each 
  every time to get any results at all.

  I wish you Good Luck,

off-list responsible proofreaders. I hope that somehow the two jiffy proofers 
can either be stopped or convinced to become responsible.

    Well, so far "hold for reader" (and I have seen other submitters doing this 
too) has kept the person who was taking all of the books I submitted and then
    just checking them back in, from taking those books. So that person is 
obviously not on the volunteer list. It seems to be working.
