nice to read you Rebecca. I used to be active on the list but with all the sex junk postings, it is not appealing. a lot go to my junk mail but some still go to my inbox. there is a lot of new exciting equipment we could discuss and inform each other.

I was digging around the internet and was curious to find this list. I live in Ottawa and have a visual impairment and thought this list would have even a small trace of useful information on it. I was very disappointed with what I found. A list with spam bots and the most recent post dating back to June of this past year. A cobweb of a list! This both frustrates and upsets me because I feel that this list could be a forum to bring the Ottawa blind/lv community closer. I know that email is becoming a thing of the past, but even just a general news/discussion thing every few weeks would be beneficial I think. Maybe we could have a group of people that sends out a newsletter about events in Ottawa both for blind people and just regular events. My point is, this thing has potential! So to the mod of this list, it's time to get your act together! Clean up those stupid spam bots and start networking and finding other people who are blind/lv to add to this thing! Let's make this list *actually* a useful resource for blind and low vision people in Ottawa! Rebecca
