Re: Mute? no lots to say

You have got to be kidding ! Most offensive, least appropriate ? Did you forget that such people used to be called "dumb" (check Wiktionary - silent, mute, unable to speak) ?

So, let's see. "Not able to say anything". To me, that means unable to SAY anything, since mute means you lack the ability to speak. That does not preclude writing, mouthing, or signing words, but it sure excludes SAYING words.

"Refraining from making a sound" ? If you are refraining, you aren't mute, you're acting mute, big difference. If you are mute, you aren't refraining, you just can't..

Ask a "deaf" person ? So deaf people are mute? Gee, I guess I missed that in the Politcal Correctness course. I thought only those unable to speak were referred to as mute.

I've talked to the other team owners about your elbow-to-the-larynx hit, and they are discussing a 10-game suspension. But since they don't know where you are, and you'll probably remain mute about your whereabouts, the punishment is moot.
