    Literacy of Deaf People

    another good point, Naisho *laughs* and its matador.. I think Let's just close this thread because you do have a point about people thinking about things that happened in this thread. But we can try to branch out and get more people to get involved so I can hear more inputs and opinions...

    Literacy of Deaf People

    I can't confirm that Desumon won't post in here again because I do not know if he will or not. But if he does post in here again, I have NOTHING to do with it and I will NOT get involved next time Desumon pisses this site off. I will just sit back and shake my head at him and the entire site...

    Literacy of Deaf People

    @ hohDougRN: All right. My bad :) @ Jillo: again, you don't know anything about him so refrain from making those comments please. I am tired of trying to explain things to people that won't listen. And this is not a thread for this kind of topic. So let's get back to the REAL topic, shall we?

    Literacy of Deaf People

    I do not judge other people, Jillo. How many times do I have to repeat that? And frankly, I go by this motto- "Judge me all you want, but keep the verdict to yourself" AKA think whatever you want, I don't care :) So.. judge me all you want, Jillo.. feel free to do that. I will just believe what...

    Literacy of Deaf People

    Defensive? :giggle: Naw. Not defensive, I do agree that he SHOULD/COULD improve in some areas. But we are not here to talk about him, are we? we are talking about LITERACY of Deaf people. Desumon is not deaf so its moot point for us to talk about him. :) @ hohDougRN: you have a GREAT point...

    Literacy of Deaf People

    @ Naisho: I don't know if it will keep him away from making more posts (since I don't believe in telling him to stop doing what he want to do since I think its controlling and he more likely will resist me on that) but we will have to see. As long as people in here don't rise to his bait and...

    Literacy of Deaf People

    Naisho and Jillo, Yes we both are on disability checks but MOST of the money goes to rent, bills, food, cat supplies (food, medicine, vet visits and etc) while we both (well.. I am trying to enroll in the same university as him next fall after I take my ACT on Feb 7th, wish me luck! ) are...

    Literacy of Deaf People

    Naisho, I am quite impressed with the collection of information you got on my boyfriend (not going to say which is right or wrong ;) ) But he don't frequent the site, actually. He was looking for good examples for his video and thought of this site so he checked it out (without logging on, mind...

    Literacy of Deaf People

    It is youtube, he have all of the rights to make any kind of videos and post them up. I can list some of the videos that I object to but I can't do anything because its within THEIR rights to make those videos and post them. Reactions varies. Some will agree with his advice, some (like you and...

    Literacy of Deaf People

    Jillo, any advice videos you see on youtube are mostly not asked for. At least he cared enough to sit down and make that video to encourage people to pick up a book and read or sit down and write in journal or write something. ASL =/= Written English Language (which is a problem for MANY of...

    Literacy of Deaf People

    Thanks for typing out the transcript for deaf-blind members, Jiro. I truly appreciate it :) I would have gotten on but boyfriend was on so I had to wait for my turn on the computer (we only have one computer until I save enough money to get a computer of my own) The creator of that video is...

    But the fact that you are taking your time to make sure people (including people OUTSIDE Deaf community) understand your grammar is admirable. You don't need flowery or big words to make yourself sound smart, just very basic understanding of grammar (noun-verb agreement, punctuations.. and all...

    Literacy of Deaf People

    I apologize. I should have made it clear that it wasn't me that made the video. I assumed that everybody will know that it wasn't me that made the video. If deaf and blind (and legally blind) people want, I can sit down and type out the transcript for them right now. I have no problem doing that.

    Literacy of Deaf People

    Who said that I made that video? I know someone who did and I thought it will be an interesting subject for this forum (and me of course) to debate on. I am a deaf person myself so why would I make a video of this? I would have to agree with you on people having different learning pace but...

    My New Kitten, Fuzzy! (dial up- BEWARE!)

    LOL! yes, its definitely time for me to buy him a new one. We are looking into getting a new scratching post, cat tree so he could climb on it and a new buddy @ David: My family is very passionate so screaming matches is a normal thing for us. *shrugs* but it rarely comes down to that with...
