While this does not excuse the rudeness on the part of Joseph hudson
in his messages, it should be noted that Brian is fully sighted and
does things as a sighted person does. It is far easier for him as a
sighted person to find answers in an email message given in the way he
prefers. As we all know most sighted people don't understand that some
blind people may have to and prefer, to do things slightly differently
than some fully sighted people do for good reason. This is why it's
customary for everyone to top post on mailing lists as most blind
I hope this clears up any confusions.

Thank you, Ann. You presented both sides in a very helpful way, and I will
try this method. Yes it's different than how I'd do it, but it sounds to me
like you have found an efficient way to read the sender's reply.

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] Talking about quoting threads in the blindness
Good heavens, all this hoopla? Joseph, I can understand your frustration,
but your message should have gone to Gene privately. Now, we've got a
whole slew of messages which are clogging up the list. You ought to know
that criticisms of posters, posts and/or the listowner and his/her
policies sent to a list are werboten. If I were the list owner, I'd place
you on review. However, I'm not he.
Actually, the topic has, I think, run its course. Brian has explained his
method, and it does make logical sense. It just requires a bit of info to
read efficiently. So, my difficulty with his posts are over. Now that I
know the most efficient way to read them, I'm good. So, talk to Gene
privately about the list, please.
If you want to read Brian's posts efficiently, and you do not want to read
the one or two sentence quote at the top of his posts, do a find for - and
you'll be placed right at the top of his posts. He actually takes some
time and effort with his posts which is more than a lot of people do.
First things first, and I'm going to do it. I wish somebody would've like--
change the subject line because it has nothing to do with the subject
line that's been discussed and I'm quite disappointed at the admin team
hasn't done this. Secondly Brian, I've never seen anybody right like what
you do, until I started reading emails on groups.io. And I communicate
with Senate folks on email quite frequently. There is nobody that writes
like what you do it's up Mark in a couple of other people on GMF. And
that's about the only time that I even pay attention to that particular
writing style. And I'm gonna tell you if this was my list. And you want
to write like that to make it confusing for other blind individuals to
decipher all that mess and especially if they were a beginner, you know
what I would do until you go ahead and start your own list and do just
exactly what you're doing here. I probably will be leaving this group
sooner than later because I've been reading and deleting this thread for
quite some time. And it sounds like it's just come in bunch of bickering
back-and-forth. And if the admin team doesn't want me to leave because of
the acid that I am to this list and to the health that I do provide
occasionally then please take control of your list a little bit better.
I'm sorry I had to come down like this but it was quite getting somewhat
