: : Hello, I stopped talking to my family a couple of months ago for something they did. Then one of them wrote me an email stating that 'my silence speaks volume'. Can any one tell me what that means?

: Without saying a word, he or she communicated disapproval/approval.

It's usually "speaks volumes" - i.e. whole books! (VSD)
