My view on DeafRead and the CI community (Rachel and...
You Are You & Your Circumstances (note the subtitles is not entirely in line with the vlog, my apologies). I just got back from a two month hiatus (recently married and got back from my honeymoon). Once arriving back, I eagerly checked DeafReead for some exciting news, some progress, perhaps something positive, but instead I was sidelined to reading the unfortunate and huge misunderstanding with Dea...

How to respond to crab-theorists: Understanding the power...
You Are You & Your Circumstances Crab-theory = not produce any positive results and leads to a spiral downhill with no enlightened understanding of the issues being discussed.
