and here comes the first clue of the day, brought to you in part by admins on the jfw mailing list.

I’m on the
jaws for windows list
hosted on
rfree lists
Why? because I’ve got nothing else better to do with my inbox, so why not, righht?
Sure, but over the past few days, the list has been less than on topic of late.
I politely, one list member to another, issued mild clues, just to say, this isn’t official, just one member to another back the off topic crap down before the owner/mods, mainly,
james
and/or
jessica
have to officially step in and squish this.
It didn’t help, kept up, and finally james very bluntly told the list membership, straight. just like this.

Subject: Admin: The off-topic messages end right here, right now.
Folks, I’ll make this rather straightforward. Windows mobile does not have anything to do with JAWS. Nor does your particular iDevice of choice. Nor does Facebook shutting down, or not, depending on the time of day. If you can’t keep your messages confined to the topic of the *JAWS For Windows* list, you will be invited to leave. If you have a problem with the rules as laid out by Jessica earlier and myself now, take it up with me off-list. Another message that doesn’t have to do with JFW, and that person will spend some time on moderation. The guidelines are not hard to follow, folks. You all received them when you subscribed. If you’d like, they can be re-sent to you as a reminder. Please, for the love of all that is sane, follow them. The admin staff will not be asking again.
James,
List Admin

in other words, get your shit in order, leave quietly, or simarily get tossed out the window.
The list membership has been told how it’s gonna roll.
Welcome to the Friday cluestick, people.
Now, keep your shit on topic, ok?
