Mr. Robinson,

 

With no malice or insult intended, is there a point you wish to bring forward here? 

 

I surmise that you have likely uncovered some poorly written code (that is also likely not terribly accessible to you), but copy and pasting it here with nary an explanation achieves what, exactly?

 

If you have an issue with Google, and their product offering, then please do take that to Google here: 

   Help improve Google’s products - http://www.google.com/tools/feedback/intl/en/. 

 

Here is a wonderful W3C resource that offers suggestions how to do so effectively: 

   Contacting Organizations about Inaccessible Websites - http://www.w3.org/WAI/users/inaccessible 

 

If however, your purpose is different, then might I also suggest to you that “disabilities” and digital accessibility transcends more than just those who are visually impaired, and includes many other disabilities, including but not limited to those with cognition issues. Your cryptic posts to this list would leave many with comprehension issues completely dumbfounded and confused – hardly a good thing on a list focused on inclusion and digital accessibility. 

 

Point blank, we cannot read your mind, nor hear the conversation you are having in your head when you post these emails.

 

Might I suggest you stop being quite so obtuse, and speak to this list in plain language?  And if your intent is to troll this list, might I politely request you not bother?  The IG in this mailing list (WAI-IG) stands for Interest Group, and I (and I am sure others) are interested in discussing ways of moving digital accessibility forward, and less interested in having you or others point out yet another site that is not perfect. The purpose of this list is not to moan and gripe, but rather to discuss how to make things better. As a very long-time subscriber to this list, I look forward to your *positive* input.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

JF
