Why this website unofficial?

The webmaster who is deaf and wanted to donate the website design and hosting services for this unofficial website.

Despite these, Deaf webmaster will continue to maintain this unofficial website.

Audism

Audism is the notion that one is superior based on one's ability to hear or to behave in the manner of one who hears, or that life without hearing is futile and miserable, or an attitude based on pathological thinking which results in a negative stigma toward anyone who does not hear.

Surdophobia

The term stands for the hostility, intolerance or fear against Deaf people, deaf culture and the Deaf Community. That includes resistance towards the sign languages used. In Latin, "surd-", derived from "absurd", means "deaf". Surdo means Deaf in Portuguese language.
