National Association of the Deaf shrieking at last!

Yes NAD want us to be leaving comments at the FCC's website again. They're using other people to use fear tactics to scare deaf people to scream "Don't Kill VRS", blah blah, blah.

The big hoot coming out of the new proposed FCC rules is the conversion from per-minute to per-user reimbursement system. NAD hates it. I love it!

I support the per-user system as it will enable the VRS providers to get very creative at getting and retaining VRS users. Thats the fun part. This reminds me of an old BBS game. I won't name the game because I want to see it happen to the VRS industry. There will be winners and there will be "others".

The upshot is the NECA funds will be stronger and the VRS industry will remain available as a reliable communications service system for the deaf society.
