LF:: "...there is more than room for another list on the topic, don't
you think?"

WL: For a variety of reasons IMHO the answer to that is "NO"! There are
several reasons for that attitude on my part not the least of which is
that I now subscribe to way too many lists in this field and the
information is too often found on almost all of them. I won't go into
detail on this and beg you to take my word for it. Between Webwatch and
all the WAI lists, my plate is way too full - sorry, but that's just a
fact. Many attempts to start lists specializing in various details of
the Disability Rights Movement, the technical aspects of
hardware/software for PWDs, the updates on changes therein, have fallen
by the wayside from lack of someone to run them and interested
participants. YAAL (yet another accessibility list) is just unwarranted
and also divisive of efforts. But go ahead and start one - it's simple,
but not easy. Just don't expect this old geezer to participate.
