It was a chat room full of sighted people.

Oh no, that's terrible, isn't that against the rules and counts as

blind as those who don't see.

Subject: Re: [Audyssey] Some Extremely Sad News
I am so sorry for your loss.
In august a really good friend of 7 years was murdered in his own
home in a very well-to-do area of Melbourne Australia, we first met
on a chat room, he had a barber's shop, and I'd go and get my hair
cut there. Let me share a story with you.
While not directly game related, I was in a chat room and I was
talking 1 on 1 with some guy about something I don't remember
what. When I told him about how I am totally blind he asked if I
was serious and I said Yes.
The next thing I knew he starts calling me every nasty name under
the sun he can think of. Go away you blind retard, you pathetic
freak, Hey guys, this blind (expletive) wants to talk to me.
Well, I think you get the idea.
Then his friend joined in the attack.
Peter saw what was happening and quickly put an end to it.
The only reason those 2 people stopped attacking me was because
they were one of the many people who visited Peter's shop, a lot of
people looked up to him, and he had a very strong sence of right
and wrong and if he saw someone getting ganged up on, he'd speak
out about it and They did not want to end up in Peter's bad
books. It always seems that the bad things happen to good people
as it did with Peter, we shared many good times together and I will
always remember what a decent person he was.
