I apologize for sending this to the entire group but enough is enough.  162
messages in an 8 hour period is too much. This message is a good example.
The author sent the message to one person, which is great, but then CCd the
entire group.  The ccs also clog up the system.  Please remove my name

I don't have a legal or moral obligation, as a web developer, to provide
accomodation for those _non-disability_ factors.  Just like I don't have
a responsibility to account for the fact that a blind guy might _not_
have a screenreader.  I don't have to provide streaming audio for every
web page on my site.
