:shock: you haven't seen me sign, Cloggy! I am in no way fluent, in fact, next week I'm putting myself through "remedial training" to clean up my sloppy basic signing and get moving past the wall I've hit.

:shock:

This surprised me. I thought you were fluent. :giggle:

Btw, I'm learning sign language as well, and, am in no way fluent.

These are the choices ??

I have been born deaf .. and can speak fluently.
... and can use speech
... and cannot use speech
I am hearing and can sign fluently
... and can sign OK
... and cannot sign
I became deaf later in life and can sign fluently
... and can sign OK
... and cannot sign
I became deaf later in life and can speak fluently
... and can use speech
... and cannot use speech

Where is the one that says "I have been born deaf .. and can sign fluently." Which is MANY (the majority of regular posters) of us on this board !
Makes you wonder about Cloggy's priorities.

Its a technique to steer the poll to say "Hey, look!" while "Proving" his points. Terrible.

I'll participate.

...There, Picked I am born Deaf, and I can speak fluently.

Can't say this poll is valid now, heh.

--I see Cloggy changed it from a "public poll" to a "private poll" Clever.

Haven't changed a thing... Isn't there a timeout on polls...??

btw.. You are assuming too much.

You changed it :) Before I could see who voted for what, now you can't.

How would I know SunnySigns voted for "Deaf" but "Cannot speak."

Went ahead and voted. deaf but can use speech.

PFH - poll is open, I could see everyone who voted and how. Not that I really needed to know.

Can you please stop lying and fabricating accusations that are totally untrue..

I guess the whole idea is to wind me up, and then report me for trolling..
As said before, I never changed anything, especially because nothing can be changed..
So, check with the mods what I have done (Im sure they will be able to see what I did & when), and then come back and apologize to me...

Watch out! Cloggy has broken in and replaced all your furniture with exact replicas. Devious!

I was raised to speak, since that was recommended by my teachers at school. Although my parents learnt sign I wouldn't sign back. I wish I did, because even now I find it hard to express what I really want to say and the words never come out how I want it to. I've grown up with sign around me(went to a deaf school that used sign and speech) but I am nowhere fluent in BSL

Just wanted to mention that vocabulary is important, especially for literacy skills which a 5 year old is working on.

No idea why I can't. either way, glad I was able to give the hearing parents a cheap thrill. =)
So it was trolling...
