Wow. Just wow. I've raided with a deaf guildie in the past and he performed great. We explained boss fights in raid chat as well as vent and occasionally we would have to whisper him for specific instructions but it was never a big problem. If I was in this guild, I would be mortified about their behavior and I can't help but feel bad for the poor guy whose disability was used as the scapegoat for the entire guild's mistakes.

I completely agree. This particular situation is horrifying. Blaming someone with a disability on the performance of an entire guild group is reprehensible in the extreme.I'm hoping that, wherever that druid ended up, the people there appreciate them more than this bigoted guild.

Everyone in that guild should be ashamed of themselves. The people that blamed him, the people that did nothing, and the ones that were on his side but made minimal effort to stick up for him. If I was in that guild I would have /gquit right along side him. Making him log into vent was the first sign that there was something wrong with that guild. That seems very childish to me, making someone log into vent even though he can't hear. And for what? Just to get a chance at some loot? Is loot that important that you have to treat someone that way?
