Face blind people, family members, friends, researchers, counselors, faculty, and students are all welcome here!
Appropriate topics here are questions about face blindness, living with face blindness, research you're doing, subjects you might be seeking, or news about face blindness research, news coverage, etc. Some face blind people who receive posts here may respond to you directly, rather than posting here.
To assure that those of you who are subscribers receive only on-topic mail, submissions are moderated but should propagate within a few hours.
When you first post, we ask that you begin with a sentence or two introducing yourself. Things to mention might be your name, your location or university, and your involvement with face blindness (such as you have it, you're a researcher, etc.)
The Yahoo interface can be confusing. We have a web page that lists our group ground rules and gives technical hints such as how to subscribe and send messages: http://home.earthlink.net/~blankface/fbp.html
Messages sent to this Yahoo group are archived and available for public viewing. While we encourage people to use their real names because it benefits people with prosopagnosia to know who they are talking to, we also understand that some people may not wish to be too revealing about their identity on an issue as sensitive as this. In this case, please try to be consistent with your name and those you write about, even if you choose to use a pseudonym.
If you are interested in a more private discourse among and between face blind people only, you may wish to check out The Face Blind Folks e-mail list, information about which can be found here: http://home.earthlink.net/~blankface/folks.shtml
