Disabled Sue Over Web Shopping

A routine article in the Wall Street Journal describing how the US-based National Federation of the Blind and the National Association of the Deaf sued Target and Netflix for failing to make their websites accessible to people with disabilities.

What sets this piece apart, however, is the tone of the 169 comments submitted by readers. (Search for Archived Comments and click on Oldest with the mouse pointer/JAWS Cursor to get started.) Some of the ignorant attitudes expressed are truly breath-taking. Set your talking watch back 100 years. :(
