..is like you are entering in a large room, full of deaf people, hearing people with its own understanding of its deaf culture, deaf blind, CODA's and much more. Alldeaf.com has been a great forum to me.
Let me tell you what happened since I joined. It was March 2005, apparently I was googling for some related sources in my research, but in the 'unrelated' source, I can't say but was addicted to deafchat.com for a long time, but wasn't on there all the time. Since I googled, and I found myself to read about alldeaf.com being stated in one of the national newspapers in the United States and that got my attention.
Unfortunately, for a short period of time, I was distracted with school work and graduating high school... I didn't return until only two years ago....it was 2006. I decided to join alldeaf.com where I was upon to stay for a long, long time. After two years of debating, making friends, chatting, joking, taking serious times, expressing a lot of different emotions I have ever had to express to these members I didn't know, by golly, I never thought that these people around alldeaf.com was very generous, kind and gentle.
I am pleased that alldeaf.com is open to any deaf people, not focused in the United States, but any country, (not to mention, spammers) like myself, an fellow australian and now well known around the forum. The forum, is now, like my deaf world, a second home, where I can go in and discuss or chat whatever it is related within the topic, nonetheless get off topic too.
In the conclusion, I feel that alldeaf.com is a wonderful thing to everyone, I have made few friends, and I tend to keep that way and keep posting all these stuff, where people would like to discuss about, unlike there was no one else to discuss, if alldeaf.com didn't exist back then. I would like to decidate this congratulations to the owner, Alex himself. All my applause goes to you, mate!
