Dear all,

May I suggest that we refrain from forwarding what has been sent out
to the everyone subscribed to the NFBnet listserve?
In other words, if a news of importance such as this is sent out to
the email address, Nfbnet-members-list at nfbnet.org, everyone who is
subscribed to any sort of nfbnet.org listserve, including NFB of
California, receives the message.
Thus, when that same message gets forwarded within the California
listserve, we end up with the same message multiple times, creating an
unnecessary duplicate or triplicate of the message.

Thank you for your attention and consideration.
