    RockmanForte: That's actually pretty awesome. I've seen you around quite a bit but never suspected you were deaf.
    It seems you've overcome more communication barriers that I ever knew.

    @brazdzx,

    Smile, now we are both deaf around here. CHEERS!

    Jeez, you shouldn't skip anyone if you expect people to talk to you only. It is partially selfish and ignorant way. Nothing's wrong with read someone else asking about you that is not relate to your question. Its okay and nice way, you know ? :) Anyway, GBATEMP is awesome.. well, most moderators are amazing around here. :)

    @Vulpes Abnocto,

    Thanks, man. I appreciate that. ;)

    LOL... I used Japan name because Rockman boxes are better than American boxes. I mean in 1990's but now American boxes are much better. Japan boxes are still number one to my opinion. :P Anyway, I just liked this user name because I think its cool. :P

    Who know.. I wonder about that since 2002 and to my surprise that youa are one revealed yourself being deaf. As the moderator above mentioned, he never knew I was deaf since I was a member of GBATEMP here. The reveal is out now, lol. :P

    Hi bradzx~ ^_^

    It's not totally related, but I'd like to talk about myself as well. I'm Asian. I moved to America 4 years ago, but nobody welcomed me: I couldn't speak the language. I was totally mute when I first moved here. Terribly mute and socially awkward. From being accustomed to my own language, and the fact that I moved here in a 'socially active' age, I just couldn't blend with the others. I also had a cultural barrier to overcome. Seriously, who would expect me to know Family Guy or SpongeBob when I first moved here? :P I didn't. I didn't know what games they liked or what they liked to eat or what they were talking about--nothing. I became even more mute, and as people started 'noticing' my 'insignificance' (pun intended :P), they started talking about me. About the mute Asian guy and started making fun of me. I became more and more mute. I hated everybody. I started studying harder and harder (since that was all I did without any friends :P), I tried more and more, and here I am. Four years after. I'm literate in the English language. I whooped those losers who made fun of me. I'm socially improving as well. I've made some friends with similar interests (although I still can't let myself go away from the Internet :P).

    My eldest brother is in somewhat of a similar situation as you are: his left ear is totally blocked by skin (just a minor physical birth defect), hindering his audibility. It's not like his nerves are severed or anything, but sound is a mechanical wave, meaning that it needs a medium (like air molecules) to move through before reaching one's ear. Since his ear is blockaded, the flow of air isn't great, essentially making him deaf on his left ear. But since you are literally deaf, it must be worse than his situation. :( Also, your right year seems semi-deaf, whereas my brother's is totally fine.

    Now, why did I bring up my bro, you ask? I just wanted to tell you that he, too, went through a language/cultural barrier like me. But now, he is successful and into his 3rd year in College (where he was asked to become an assistant teacher, which counts as a community service), while working in Dell. He even studies and works during his summer break to meet his expectations. I'm totally proud of him. ^_^

    That said, it's not much different than your situation; you have the capability to improve upon yourself and be excepted here with effort. Although you're almost deaf, you can use some aid to help you on your hearing. It's still not late to try and learn better grammar. Don't let being deaf or having a language barrier impair your future. You can also become successful.

    Now, improve yourself, and go laugh back at those who laughed at you! :tpi:

    *sighs* I am not worrying about your brother problem or your. I am born deaf and I am in hearing world. If I am in hearing world, then why I am here front of hearing people around here? Think about forum like a Earth. That why I have to deal with hearing people.

    bradzx,

    I know.. Many hearing arent aware of deaf culture and their situtation. Dont blame the hearing people. Blaming the school because they dont taught about deaf history. That's sad. :)


    s4mid4re,

    Cool.. Very interesting story. However, a deaf is worse ? Don't you think it is a little bit harsh to us ? It is kinda hurtful, man. For myself, I am very happy with being deaf. I have plenty REAL deaf friends and REAL hearing friends. Also, I have eyes and hands and I can do anything I want.. Just like hearing people and wonderful life but except I cannot do is hear and thats no big deal. :)

    I was talking about the condition of audibility being worse than my bro's (brandzx is semi-deaf, while my brother is only impaired on one ear). ;O;
    I'm very sorry if I have offended the two you. ;_;

    From the previous posts, I have perceived that it was somewhat related to a language barrier (not being fluent on the language, thus being flamed for it). That's why I related my story of overcoming my language barrier. I wanted to tell him that it's not late to try now. He can do it; I wanted to encourage him that he could improve, likewise I did and likewise you, who have become successful in the language, despite being deaf as well.

    It's not like I was trying to belittle deaf people, in fact, I said I totally respected and am proud of my brother who is (somewhat) deaf in one ear.
