  1. please try resist away from drug
    I have a deaf friend, and when she writes, it’s a little off, kind of like an accent. It isn’t, however, freaking indecipherable the way this is.
    Drugs are bad, mmmmkay?

  2. There’s no way of knowing for sure if she is really deaf. I do know that English is often a second language for an ASL user. And, someone who hasn’t spent much time on English might well use such a syntax.
    I’m going to pass it by a deaf person and see what she thinks.

    1. That would be the anon comment I just got on a totally different post, and which I shall now quote in its entirety: ” Subject: Promorion presend:ultracet pain management ultracet”

  3. Her first language is definitely ASL; I recognise some of the syntax. Given that, I’m not surprised that she’s hardcore drug/alcohol free — most Deaf people are hardline Xtians.
    Nonetheless, a weird comment.
