I see this a lot too.
I happen to be a member of both the ACB and NFB. Yeah, I know, its rare. I use both orgs as tools to get what I need done.
Now, what I have found among the blind is that a lot of us are very anal retentive. It may have a lot to do with the fact that we have to be super organized. There is nothing wrong with that. However, the failure to compromise can be a bit of a sticking point. This is rather unfortunate as there is good talent among the blind, but with such mentality as to cause a lot of friction, even with other blind folks.
btw, I am also a blind nerd, but I have learned over the years that being inflexible can have serious consequences, especially for me. call it a maturing process. Its something we all have to learn (and it is easier for some and not so much so for others).

This is how distro religious wars start. But of all the community of nerds I am associated with, blind nerds are the worst. There is absolutely no compromise, no willingness to work together, nothing! In fact, it's ubiquitous in the blind community. We even have 2 different advocacy groups, the NFB and the ACB. And the health of the blind community as a whole can just go to heck for all anyone cares. Drives me crazy. The reason why F12 should give you the time is that that the standard. Because people expect F12 to give them the time. It's that simple.

>> Why do I want insert+f12 to tell me the time when insert+t, (t for time), can do that for me just fine and more intuitively? How is f12 better than t, which stands for time? No, that's simply not a logical keybinding, and I don't want it in Orca. BTDubs, holding in the insert Orca key and double tapping t for time does tell me the date. So again I ask what the hell does f12 mean and why is it needed to do the same thing that t already does?
