Well...we are a bunch of accessibility evangelists. :) But I
agree that we have to remember that these are people's
creations and that "doing something wrong" is not what we're
pointing out but, rather, helping them see MORE that they can
do right.

Ha...not after having my appendix removed a few days ago. But
the pain killers help. :)

Ok...anyone for simply putting the words "game accessibility"
on the d*** shirt and calling it quits?

And, I wrote "run with the sharks" earlier...maybe that's our
new slogan? Catchy and hardly makes sense!
