What tangled webs Deaf Read and DVTV weave

Greetings all

DeafRead is an important aggregator that has some guidelines that it does not follow.

On May 8 (the day before Mother’s day) Barry Sewell’s entry in his Holism blog was entitled “When Narcissists looks like one but is not.” (I know I know bad English but that is not what irks me) was run by DeafRead and is still listed there despite numerous complaints to DeafRead’s owner and operator, Tayler Mayer. Tayler and his team of editors have ruled that it is to remain listed. Go figure.

In this blog entry Barry Sewell (B.S.) who spins in the v/blogsphere under various alias (Buckaroo, Oh Buckaroo, Dr. Hocokan or Hococan (he’s not a dr.), Gurusays, Berry Tadodaho, etc) attacked a Deaf psychotherapist and her Deaf daughter after the psychotherapist made a vlog “When Narcissists Use Children.”

B.S. erroneously attributed the psychotherapist’s vlog to be about him and his son (ohBuckaroo jr.) It ain’t always about you babe. It’s interesting and a wee bit telling that he attributed it to be about himself and his offspring. The vlog is pretty clear about talking about narcassists and the using of children generally. Even offers some examples not relating to the b/vlogsphere.

The vlog did happen to come out after Barry Sewell had attacked another vlogger by spreading untruths about this vlogger’s daugther. (see Holism blog “Cheap & Dirty Shots by Nikki” which ran on May 2, 2010 or view it in DVTV.

In his “When Narcissists looks like one but is not.” he also attacks any parent who might encourage their children to be involved in social justice activism via any Deaf groups that he has been attacking over the past few years (AFA, DBC, Deafhood, NAD I guess too if someone brought their kids to NAD event..). B.S. then goes on to offer the worst and most twisted and irrational display of his lack of knowledge and common sense – the most … yet to date to find their way to the printed page. He usually saves his really kooky stuff for vlogs and video comments. But i have faith that it is only gonna get twistier soon.

The b.s. in the “When Narcissists looks like one but is not.” entry gets better in the comments section when Joe Riolo (a Hearing Deaf father of a Deaf son) shows up and gives a link for filing a complaint with the licensing board because… “there are some circumstantial or subtle hints in her vlog that made me doubt her altruistic motivation behind her vlog. Also, the timing of her vlog after your son’s vlog is very eerie. Yet, I must resist the temptation to turn these unreliable evidences into facts.”

Oh Joseph – I love ya but that was very grade school of ya man. Talk about eerie my friend – the psychotherapist was not even talking about Barry Sewell’s son and his little copyright violations video.

2nd to last comment is from theHolism (aka B.S. himself) saying that he still has to burn a DVD of the pyschotherapist’s vlog and send to the “licensure” board and there is a bit of chit chat about the psychotherapist having altered her vlog – which she hasn’t at all. Just more b.s. folks – from the master with a little help from his friends.

I will dissect his entry in detail soon but i want to keep this blog entry’s focus on the INAPPROPRIATENESS & and INJUSTICE of DeafRead running that blog and leaving it listed. As well as them publishing his “Cheap Shot” vlog attacking a different Deaf mother and her Deaf daughter in DVTV. I know they can not control the comments but they can control what they decide to publish and they are aware that when they run something they are giving it more visibility and traffic and lowering the bar on our civil discourse to the point of attacks and character defamation.

this is nothing new and its a BIG BIG BIG pity. DR and DVTV – u had so much positive potential! Painful to watch the goodness get sucked out of it due to all the pollution and liter they choose to post and list. Would that they hold true to their own guidelines and give “to bigotry, no sanction, to persecution no assistance.”

Seems the paradigm can only shift so far when you keep letting all these nasty lies be spun and hung all over ur aggregator and website. Exercise a bit of wisdom please and don’t run this sh#$ if you are truly interested in seeing a shift that u can take a bit of credit for materializing.

Careful careful – more than just innocent bystanders and Deaf mom’s and their Deaf daughters are gonna get cut up in that web – you Deafread and DVTV owner/operator and Human Editors and all the good folks who subscribe and submit their b/vlogs are gonna get caught up too while the spider gets fat and happy.

First they came for…

And PURPLE might wake up and say – hmmmmm bad PR

But most of all – stop running that crap cuz its the right thing to do – u know “the better angels of our nature…”


Your spin:

Note: 5/19/2010 – this post was modified to remove the first name of Tayler Mayer because someone said that using his first name is a “brutal attack” against him so i have revised accordingly.

    If BS think it is about him, maybe he feel guilty.

    If BS think it is about him, maybe he feel guilty.

    But really, it take alot of researchs for a psychotherapist to come to her conclusion. So I’m sure she been studying this for quite some time.

    Thanks DeafA

    The fact that BS automatically assumed it was about him and his son does seem to fit the m.o. for Narcissist Personality Disorder.

    Regardless the psychotherapist didn’t name anyone and really is talking very generally – i learned a bit about Narcassist Personality Disorder from that vlog as i have learned quite a bit from their other vlogs on suicide, cherry picking, labeling behaviors and not people etc. They do real good stuff there.

    PROJECTION and DEFLECTION are the boy’s favorite game.

    that is why the opposite game comes in so handy – or just holding up a mirror to his v/blogs so the three fingers point more easily back to their source.

    I remembered that according the psychotherapist’s vlog, she mentioned that the main objective of being a narcissit is to enhancing his or her image even when done falsely. So BS reacted with his blog because his IMAGE took a hit. It is all about a false image he need to continue to project and deflect any hits off. Patti is correct on her assesment. Excellent blog!

    Well, that’s everyone’s own perspective whether that vlog was in regards to Barry or not. Ridor said it was. And, according to Ridor, he is always right. hmm.

    Either way, it is inappropriate for anyone to diagnose anyone online.

    I saw that video to be in bad taste.

    Just like that video that Carl had which implicated Tony Mendoza to be involved with deaf porn simply based on a deaf porn owner’s support for AB 2072. I guess it’s ok with you that Carl made that video and what’s really strange about Carl is: a professor spewing hate is also out on the lecture circuit giving out lectures on deaf hate crime. Ironic. 😉

    May 15, 2010 @ 20:32:26

    Candy –
    Ridor said it was about Barry’s attack on Nikki and her daughter not about Barry’s son’s cartoon (wolf and sheepdog and sheep) which is what Barry said it was about … which it wasn’t etc etc
    follow me

    re: Diagnose anyone online – She didn’t do this AT ALL. NOT AT ALL.

    Pls do ur HW and watch ridor’s vlog again and watch the psychotherapist’s vlog again and STOP the b.s. Bulls#itting is totally in bad taste babe. TOTALLY!

    and wow nice work at trying to deflect us from the topic at hand in this blog entry – u know the little thing about DR and DVTV violating its own guidelines by running attack blog / vlogs.

    Glad you found your way to this blog entry even though im OFF the path of DR.

    re: the mendoza and russel vlog – i have made it known to the author of that vlog i ain’t cool with it.

    re: spewing hate in his lectures – that is NOT what he is doing in the lectures so pls no more MYTH MAKING (ie BSing here Candy cuz its in bad taste – ya know.

    now back to the topic – DR and DVTV’s management of what they list and keep up in those 2 deaf spaces

    interesting how u spin girl. i just spun yellow (for hope). Your turn.

    Would suggest our Deaf community of vlogs/blogs to email or write the letter to the Purple Communication about requesting to withdrawal the DeafRead and DVTV for contributing to Brain Tayler Mayer, owner of DeafRead and DVTV. (if the Purple Communication’s contract expired, may go ahead).

    I find it odd that Candy thinks the psychotherapist was diagnosing anyone. It is clear that she didn’t. She was giving examples of narcissistic traits. She was discussing divorce cases. Psychotherapists discuss diagnoses all the time online. There is nothing inappropriate about it. I have seen some of her other vlogs. Does it mean it was inappropriate for her to discuss bipolar disorder or depression because it may imply she was diagnosing someone online? Depression is everywhere. Bipolar disorder is everywhere. Narcissistic personality disorder is everywhere. Barry Sewell is one ODD man!

    thanks for your comment

    oddity seems to be the rule of the day
    and in terms of narcissism – we all must have a healthy dose of it to even venture out into these wicked waters called the v/blogsphere however for a true-blue Narcissistic personality disorder – that takes a real special person. its a pretty rare condition thankfully.

    I dont know what B.S. has got but he definitely has something – maybe even a couple of somethings.

    Re; the psychotherapists vlogs – they are very helpful. Not often we can get access to some of that information in ASL – wheres if you google the words Narcissistic personality disorder – you will get a TON of English based links. so why isn’t everyone else screaming “are you talking about me -my poor son has to live in my bloody shadow… woe woe woe is us spider weaver firekeepers”

    I wasn’t talking bout specific video at all. Ridor said, when you look at ASC video, it is clear who she was talking about. That is what I am pointing at. Whether she was referring to a specific video, I have no clue because she didn’t say anything. When I first saw that video by the psychotherapist, I didn’t related that to any video because nothing there pointed to anything, right. So, when I viewed Ridor’s vlog, he mentioned that and of course, Barry mentioned it too. Another commenter brought up interesting points that begs the question. If you look at Ridor’s video titled “Sunday Tidbit” may 9th, 2010, you’ll see that he connected the psychotherapists referring to Barry. Look at :58 to 1:21. He never mentioned which video. And, I never mentioned which video either. I said ” that’s everyone’s own perspective whether that vlog was in regards to Barry or not. Ridor said it was. And, according to Ridor, he is always right. hmm.” So, I never mentioned a specific video. My point was if Ridor is always right, as he claims he is. Then ASC video could be referring to Barry (person) not video. If that is true, then ASC is in essence, diagnosing Barry. That was what I was referring to. Barry thought she was referring to buckaroo video, right. But I never said that. Either way, the only way for all of this to stop is to actually not respond to anything and that is what is happening all over. People keep responding to get even. We’re not kids! Ya know?

    So, I’m like really not understanding why you’re upset and using derogatory terms at me. I never mentioned which video, read my comments again! And, yes, look at Ridor’s video again, between :58 and 1:21. He did not mentioned which video. All he said, you can tell clearly who Candance was talking about, Barry! That’s all. Just pointing out facts. Geesh. Touchy aren’t ya?

  13. handeyes
    May 16, 2010 @ 12:17:44

    re: Touchy aren’t ya – possibly very true i am touchy or it could be projection on your part or it could be both


    re: ridor always being right – oh my goodness. Are you basing your whole logic on the argument that since Ridor says he is always right then ridor is always right and is right right when he said at point… in the video that the pyschotherapist was specifically talking about Barry??????? You are arguing that it is a truism that Ridor is always right because he said so???

    as you said “we’re not kids! Ya Know?” i am not so sure. today i am not so sure.

    You said “I’m like really not understanding why you’re upset and using derogatory terms at me”

    I am upset because DR and DVTV running the attacks on the psychotherapist and daughter and Nikki and her daughter is in violation of their own guidelines & it totally diminishes the GREAT POTENTIAL that is DR and DVTV. folks go silent real quick when they see cyberbullies rule the playground, school room, and principles office.

    Re: derogatory terms at you – wow. this is wrong and bad of me if i did this. i just re-read my comments to you and i see i am sassy and brassy but i didnt see me being derogatory. Please please do show me my derogatory terms re: you. I too need mirrors.

    In re-reading my comment i do see how i was dishing out what i was given in your initial comment. I am trying to hold up a mirror by using some of your own words to illustrate how it might feel to be on the receiving end of it. No fun, eh?

    I would like to apologize to you for any harm or insult that I did cause you. I would love for us to converse about the topic of DR and DVTV’s accountability when running attack vlogs and blogs. I commit to refrain from being sassy and brassy if you will do me the same honor.

    I thank you and commend you for coming back to comment and for telling me how you felt. Again, I apologize for any slight i may have caused u and i welcome any apology u might choose to offer.

    The sun is shining on my face and our dog is sleeping at our feet. life is good. thank you for being part of it

    I was referred to here by ASLNikki and found these blogs interesting. not entirely accurate but nevertheless that it was deaf community against Barry.

    the little story started when ridor mentioned that barry had nikki’s daughter over to be with his kids for some time. it went sour and ridor went on with some rumors against barry. barry’s reaction was to portray with his wife in vlog to ‘straight out the truth’. coincidently, licensed counselor made a vlog in general statement where ridor made a comment and then made a vlog in reference to barry. i made a vlog that this counselor was not referring to anyone in particular. she stated that there are many out there that we all need to identify with and get help on it. you can see it under “2 items – FCC and Narcissism” in DVTV. i did it out of naiveness due to my lack of knowledge with the DVTV history. Barry ignored my statement to forget everyone else and focus on each self and made a fatal statement which you are referring above. i told barry to remove it out of respect for licensed counselor. he defiantly stated that he is right and has right to take on her. that is his downfall.

    thank you for letting me comment here.

    hi flyingace

    re: inaccuracy – can you please point them out – if you are referring to my blog not mentioning the details you cover – there are many many other vlogs/blogs and comments that have also not been mentioned. Im just sticking to Barry blog and vlog entries that DR and DVTV carried cuz my issue is with their carrying them as they are filled with falsehoods and attacks.

    a classic tool used by dysfunctional folks is to get us all sidetracked and racing from here to there. My eyes are trained on the offending v/blogs of Mr. Barry Sewell as mentioned above which DEAF READ and DVTV CARRIED (blog attacked a good psychotherapist and daughter and vlog attacking a good ASL teacher / advocate and daughter). I am sorry if i neglected to sing you and all the other truthseekers praise.

    the using of children to attack Deaf mothers’ may indeed be the B.S.’s downfall. It is definitely the line he crossed in which good Deaf folks have taken off their blinders and started to share their truths and their experiences with the holism and his unholiness.

    it is also allowing us to take a stand against DR and DVTV violating its own guidelines by publishing and leaving up this s#it

    thank you for your comment and for taking a stand.

    The ASC website was couched in general terms and was meant to be informative, not specific. No matter what a professional information website says, someone is sure to take it personally.

    It’s only human. Whenever speaking on something that relates to many people, the first thing people do is wonder who was targeted? and then to wonder if it was meant for *ME*?

    In fact, when I read it, I thought of several bloggers who have kids and had allowed them to be involved in d/Deaf activism, including myself, and even examined myself to see if I had narcissistic tendencies in letting my kids be involved. (They are over 21 and were more enthusiastic than I about it, VBG.)

    What is not cool is getting publicly offended about it and reacting in a way that amounts to admitting one is the target, accurate or not. What is not cool is threatening the blog writer’s professional certification or employment. What is not cool is the blog writer pulling the entire website as a result and closing up her information service for the blogsphere. Alas, that is also human.

    That is a loss to the Deaf blogsphere. We have a right to information that helps us understand and to conduct ourselves in a better way. We have a right to stop those who would control cyberspace by silencing valuable resources such as ASC.

    As for the DeafRead board not being proactive in allowing this kind of threat to get past the guidelines, I also wonder. How realistic is it for them to immediately monitor and censor hundreds of v/blogs on a daily basis? It would be nice if they could police us that way and make for a better quality blogsphere. However, the onus is upon US READERS to do it…to immediately denounce this type of threat and back each other up en masse when those few persons try to shout us down.

    It could create controversy, such as saying that one has a right to be offended if it was indeed about him or that it was unprofessional to diagnose, versus that it is wrong to threaten someone’s licensing status because of writing a general information blog. That is what discourse is all about.

    What we do not want is censorship by threatening, duress, embarrassment or going to uninvolved politicians to manipulate situations.

  17. handeyes
    May 16, 2010 @ 16:29:05

    ah the voice of reason – thank you Diane

    re: DR and DVTV – yes proactive policing might be difficult but surely not impossible. Several good folks have formally requested that DR and DVTV remove the offending listing link (DR) or the vlog itself (DVTV) (which would be after the fact policing but still better than nothing) to no avail.

    Others are now contacting PURPLE.

    We will see see where this goes. The NYTimes, Newsweek, etc get plenty of submissions that they simply say “thanks but no thanks” to. this is not censorship but rather good judgment.

    Thanks again Diane – especially like how you examined ur own conduct. We must always start with ourselves when we desire to be truly healthy and happy.

    May 16, 2010 @ 20:06:24

    That is exactly what i said in my vlog in DVTV called “2 items – FCC and Narcissism” Barry took over this platform and personally attacked ASC. In my vlog, i said on professional level, Candance never pointed or suggested anyone in particular at all.

    I thought all along that Barry was a professional businessman and has no time for petty things like what Ridor9th vlogged about. it turned out to be a fiasco and personal vendetta.

    ASC removed itself from DVTV and DR. thereon barry lost all credibility and affected deaf community deeply with uncontained damages in proportion as the oil spill in Gulf of Mexico.

    The recent letters to Purple reflects that the damage control needs to be immediately attended to.

  20. flyingace1918
    May 16, 2010 @ 20:08:54

    In DVTV i made a vlog where Barry made a comment. did you see the vlog and comments or did someone report to you?

    May 16, 2010 @ 20:49:11


    Thank you for your steadfast defense of ASC and for your firm stand against DeafRead/DVTV’s and Purple’s association with inappropriate and harmful blogging practices.

    ASC would like to clarify a few misunderstandings related to our recent vlog, “When Narcissists Use Children”. We are reposting this comment in several places, in hopes of clarifying, for once and for all, some misinterpretations that have been repeated in various posts and comments.

    1. The above-mentioned vlog is an educational one.

    2. The vlog is not targeted at any specific person(s), even though it may remind people of certain people in their lives who seem to fit the criteria.

    3. No diagnosis of anyone is being made online. A psychological diagnosis can only be made after conduction of a formal assessment.

    4. ASC did not close our website, alter or remove the vlog, or announce an end of our educational vlogs. ASC is simply no longer publishing our posts on DeafRead and DVTV. We do not wish to be associated with aggregators that condone blogs and vlogs which allow malicious content online. We believe that in our Deaf community, all of us have a responsibility to monitor and respond to destructive and harmful material published online.

    5. ASC’s vlogs and blogs can continue to be found at: http://www.ascdeaf.com/blog, http://www.youtube.com (ASCDEAF) and http://www.aslrocks.com (ASCDEAF). We have also given permission for our posts to be republished at http://signcasts.com/ and http://www.oicmovies.com/.

    Thank you.

    May 16, 2010 @ 20:51:23

    Candy, it is easy to take my words out of context to fit your whims, eh? I made it clear that Dr. Candace McCullough never identified nor labelled anyone else, like it or not. She officially did *not*. But even to you, you knew what she was talking about. Speculations are the NEXT thing that we can do and that is within our human nature to do so.

    Dr. McCullough *never* diagnosed anyone else in particular. She merely explained what the symptons of NPD are. And that they TEND to use anything and yes, anyone to get what they wanted. It creates many avenues for us to point and discuss.

    I repeatedly said that I knew it was about Barry — it is MY observation that Barry fits the criteria. Even Barry *himself* reacted as well.

    The irrefutable fact remains the same: Dr. McCullough never identified nor diagnosed anyone else in particular. Period. It is despicable for people like Barry and you to go after their careers just because you disliked nor disagreed with their blogs or vlogs.

    Oh, by the way, when I said I’m always right – I knew you’d use it out of context. I often indicated that there are many situations that I observed, tried to interject but failed … the situations often ended up the way I knew it would end up — what do you call that? I’m wrong? I’m lucky? Nah. That is what I was talking about.

    Don’t spin it around, dear.

    hi flyingace

    i didnt see your vlog as i have been in boycott of DVTV since the fall and didnt subscribe to you in Youtube. I just added you now. How i found out about what Barry did to Nikki – someone sent me a link to his youtube vlog. How i found out what Barry did to the psychotherapist – someone sent me the link to his blogsite

    I am a member of Audism Free America – which has the “A” word in it that Barry hates. I am a Deaf woman. I seek the truth, love, justice, and equality. I am comfortable with Deafhood. I love Paddy Ladd. While Ella and I do not always agree, I do admire and cherish her. She is grand and good. I do not like bullies, I do not like falsehoods, I do not like threatening people’s workplace and homelife and CHILDREN.

    In short, Barry and his b.s. and I have been introduced.

    Flyingace – u have done good. Thankfully there are many other good folks out there who have been watching and challenging as well. Re: how he treated u – i am sorry but it is awfully familiar. Can we spell P A T T E R N?

    Again, ya did good. glad to subcribe to ya.



  26. the one and only ridor
    May 16, 2010 @ 21:23:07

    Getting personal, are you? I simply EXPRESSED my THOUGHTS. I was not CONFIRMING it at all. That is two big different things. People knew that I do NOT represent Deaf people nor community — they can do it on their own. I represent only me!

    Candy, you seemed to enjoy hanging people’s words against each other for years and yes, decades.

    Candace McCullough

    I love you. A truthseeker and a brave heart all in one. WOW! Thank you for showing up here and spelling out these truths for all to see.

    Thank you for your continued commitment and faith in our wonderful Deaf community. Sorry about all the falsehoods and b.s. that have been thrown your way. totally unnecessary but hopefully some good will come out of it and more folks will see the truth and DR and DVTV might grow some… also.

    Everybody send those letters – and check out charles the Rogue – i think he is planning a petition to PURPLE.

    Candace – thank you for being strong and being brave.

    May your family continue to vlog forever more. We need the good stuff ya know.



  29. Dianrez
    May 16, 2010 @ 21:35:44

    Candace, my mistake in thinking you had pulled the website when you just removed it from the Deafread/DVTV aggregation. Apologies.

    I still think, however, that you shouldn’t have left the aggregator because of other v/bloggers because that gives them a victory and the platform to themselves. Allow the readers to have their say in what they want on the aggregator. They will jump in to give support to the views they consider most enlightened.

    Just to say: it was wrong of that v/blogger to threaten your license because of inferring that your website referred to him. Likewise, it is wrong to influence the sponsorship of DeafRead because of an assumption that the aggregator should police its members when such a undertaking may be logistically impossible.

    Patti and DeafRead: what would work better is a rating or a flagging system: the more negative flags raised by readers, the closer attention the editors would give to examining the blog for possible banning. This makes necessary a delay of up to a week before an offending blog is finally pulled or banned because people will need to make decisions for themselves about its acceptability. This is a stronger sanction than simply making the blog “invisible” which is no influence at all.

  30. the one and only ridor
    May 16, 2010 @ 21:38:10

    Well done, Patti. I enjoyed reading this entry. I want to emphasize that when I saw Dr. McCullough’s vlogs, I merely expressed my thoughts. ASCDEAF never diagnosed nor made a malicious comment towards anyone else in particular. If people wanted to blame someone, blame it on me. I may be the first one who speculated that Barry has NPD — I mean, who else would not think like that out there?

    Otherwise, what Barry attempted to derail Dr. McCullough’s career which she worked hard to build is simply despicable and appalling. Unfortunately, it is not the first time that he and his cohorts did. What really made everything so sickening is that Brian Mayer is aware of this and yet, is tolerating these wanton attacks within DR & DVTV.

    I must admit that when Joey Baer abruptly left DeafRead in 2008, I thought he was bit too quick with his feet.

    Boy, I was wrong. See? I’m not always right as I would like to be!


  31. handeyes
    May 16, 2010 @ 22:02:32

    u read it here folks – Ridor said “Boy, I was wrong.”

    Really wish it wasnt necessary but enuf is enuf



  32. handeyes
    May 16, 2010 @ 22:06:53


    wonder if you wouldnt mind reading my letter to PURPLE to better understand why a boycott is appropriate here.

    DR / DVTV got numerous emails from folks saying those two items should not be carried in DR / DVTV – the team ruled in favor of keeping them up.

    this is the fact of the matter.

    I understand your reason for staying and I respect it. However, by staying you show your comfort and support for the vehicle that lists your blog. I’m really surprised you still opt for that given what happened to Nikki and Candace.

    Hello all,

    At 2007 DeafRead conference, I stood and said in front of the audience that I felt that DeafRead is not protecting me and us by allowing bashing blogs/vlogs. We urged DeafRead to take some kind of action to protect our precious Deaf Community. Nada for while… not until I left DeafRead in October 2008 and ever since, I have not seen any steps by DR and now DVTV to make sure this doesnt happen again. Nada!
    And now this…

    The whole thing is not surprising me but we need to stand up for our beliefs and principles. We ESPECIALLY must protect our own children and DR and DVTV haven’t done that.

    Thank you Joey

    Big time. time to stand for that which is just, right and good. Cyberbullying ain’t cool and shouldnt be posted and sanctioned by aggregators and websites

    It is time for Deaf Read and DVTV to clean the mess up and take care of their health. Deaf Read and DVTV should take a serious matter with their websites to be the best for everyone, who is concerns about change the Policy website to more safety and very friendly than being rude to everyone. Owner of DVTV should take his thinking what is the best for his website and fix his Attitude and egoism. Because of his Reputation, He was in PupleTrailer of the year recipient. It means He should be Respect to the Deaf Community what He did his work to everyone in Internet world. I believe that Deaf Read and DVTV will lose the Purple banners for what His done work to the Vloggers. It is very important to show them what is true colors, no matter what is keep the clean and friendly Environment. Deafagent

    “to bigotry, no sanction, to persecution no assistance.”


    a line has been crossed numerous times by this particular v/blogger and his persecution of good organizations and individuals has been given assistance by DR/DVTV

    DR/DVTV has all the power to – just say ‘no.’ These little vlogs entitled FACTS when in fact they are not factual at all – nah we ain’t gonna carry that b.s. And this little vlog attacking this organization by spreading falsehoods and trying to get others to report them to the CA Dept of Justice on false pretenses – nah we dont really want to be encouraging that shit either. And this little vlog viciously spreading lies about a little girl cuz u r mighty pissed that her momma has used the “A” word (A is for Audism folks and Barry shrinks like the wicked witch under water if u use that word) that vlog dont sit well with us, and this little blog entry where you go OFF about a psychotherapist being a narcissist because you thought she was pointing the finger at YOU YOU YOU (hmmmm…) and you attack her daughter and everyone else who has kids and encourages them to get busy for social justice, well this one is just too embarrassing for words. But it gets better because we gave it traffic and then someone showed up to say here is the link to report this person and the big bad wolfie BS said i will do it yes i will and when SEVERAL people emailed DR and said – u HAVE to remove that blog entry from ur listing of approved DR blog entries based on what has transpired in that blog – you DR replied – nah we dont have to and we wont.

    so there it sits – still sits

    Wow – dont u even have a measure of shame DR / DVTV

    and amy – oh please girl. your timing is just WAY to obvious.

    again, DR/DVTV can NOT take any credit for a paradigm shift if they are allowing all this SHI# to hang out and be listed and run on their sites for folks to slip and fall into. Or get tangled up in.

    DR/DVTV and friends – the only way u r gonna make it out fo this web is to come clean and say “my bad, I’m sorry and i commit to doing right by our Deaf community especially Deaf children.”

    ain’t so hard

    a bit humbling but aint so hard

    and folks will dance for joy big time. then u can shout out about ur goodness. until then – ya gotta prove it.

    DR/DVTV do the right thing – oh pretty please!

    DVTV has already hurt the Deaf community by allowing divisiveness and defaming of good leaders. DVTV has a very hands off approach even with the issues of sexism, racism, and homophobia, not to mention audism, being prevalent themes of discussion. DeafRead is now also polluted with this kind of hatred and those who propose a “deafless” society. Please do not join in the genocide of ASL and our Deaf generation by promoting CI’s and contributing large sums of money to DVTV and DeafRead, which is a conflict of interest to the services which your business provides.

    did you intend for this to be a letter to PURPLE? A bit unclear if this is a comment or something you intended to send to PURPLE?

    OMG someone is trying to stop DR / DVTV from listing and posting b/vlogs about traveling and yoga

    holy cow batman that is so ridiculous

    and yes it is ridiculous cuz that is NOT what people are trying to stop and it is NOT what people are complaining about

    they are protesting DR / DVTV’s promoting and enabling of cyberbullying and audism

    really u didn’t catch that?

    wow u must be deep in the web

    Yoga, traveling, religious are cool. Attacks. are. not. cool. We have to stop cyberbullying.

    If we stop cyberbullying by people like Barry Sewell, we can have many more yoga, travelling, religious b/vlogs.
