He asked would this considered offensive by deaf people for them to talk verbally in a public place such as a mall as he stated above? And my answer was no and it still is.
If two hearing people are allow to sign in public which most of you don't considered that rude, then why can't the two deaf people use their voice in public? That's the whole point of what he was trying to ask from the get and go, But some of them brought up Gally, that's where the thread gets confused.
See post #40..Kokonut (the OP) was the one who changed the theme of this thread by changing the scenario to Gallaudet.
