Ah, you know how it is, some people just aren't happy if they don't have
something to bitch about.
Just wondering what this all has to do with JAWS.

Hi, Joe. I don't blame you for not wanting to join to many of the blind groups. The class I was in had sighted teachers and they acted like children and teen-agers. One time the instructor was polishing her fingernails. One of the students who had partial sight told me what was going on. I think it's wrong when a teacher who's supposed to teach, sits there and either puts on make-up or polishes her nails during class is stealing company time. That's the other reason I left ROP.

This is the reason, why I will never join the blind groups, very few blind really help won an other.

Hi, Dave. Speaking of children, in June of 2004 I quit a computer class for that same reason. I was going to this program called ROP which stands for regional occupation program. They were supposedly teaching skills so a student could eventually get a job. I know that part of having a job is having to go on the internet to resaresearch something but at ROP they didn't want to teach it. All they wanted to teach was the basics--namely microsoft word and excel. When I asked the instructor if they were going to teach the internet, she blew up at me and told me that I would be dropped from the class if I asked that again. I told her that learning to go on the internet was just as important as learning the basics. To make a long story short, she told the supervisor that I had a so called attitude. The supervisor called me and got on my case. I told her that I wasn't going to ROP just to learn the basics but that I also wanted to learn to go on the internet. Anyway, in June I told Karen (the supervisor) that I was quitting the class. I told her that I was wanting to learn openbook but that wasn't the only reason I quit the class. I don't recommend ROP to anyone because the teachers even act like babies or teen-agers. All they want to do is stay stuck in a rut.

I thought for a while that I had landed on a website catering to children.

Which inquiry are you referring to? I wouldn't take it personal if you should happen to not get a response to a question. It's possible that no one had an answer. There has been instances too where I've put up questions within email lists and didn't get an answer. As for the childish bickering that you've come across and we've all seen, I just ignore it myself. If you start to see a thread going awry, just ignore it. Probably the worst thing you could do is send a response to a thread like that. It only encourages the thread to continue. If you give it a while, usually the thread will just die on its own. If not, there's always that handy delete key.

I have entered several friendly inquiries with no response.
I read the constant back and forthing by a few members who seem to get along nicely with other but ignore others.
From a newcomers perspective, you sound like a bunch of underworked children with too much time on their hands.
My question is, are you looking for oppertunities to solve problems or are you a social club with insiders capturing all of the cyberspace in the web site?
Much of the info is great. Some of it is just so much garbage.
Please let me know if you are in the business of solving problems or just wasting time on repetitive, childish interplay.
