Deaf/ HOH?

I recently stumbled across something I have been looking for for a long time. A forum aimed at people who are Deaf or HOH.
There are other of course. But often they focus on only hearing aids, or only parents with small children.
But this one could be really great. If people start posting.
How could it be that there are not other people looking for the social outlet of talking to, sharing frustrations with and encouragement that could be found in a community like this?

The forum is . There is also a Wednesday night chat offered a la 1999, as a large room of people responding randomly to several different conversations.
In theory, there is a topic of discussion each week. Sometimes we get near that topic, but mostly its like a book club. We're there for everything but the book. And thats fine. It appears that most people who show up are looking for something like I am- a social group that understands the everyday frustrations with hearing- or lack there of.

So pass the word. I need this. And probably a lot of other people do too.
