Message I Just Posted on alt.support.autism

May 29, 2008

I have been at this for a long time, and posted on lots of forums, and, while people will always disagree with each other, I have rarely seen such horrible behavior from other human beings. And blaming it on autism won’t cut it either. I am also autistic, as is my father, and I know, and work with, other autistics on a regular basis.

I also interact with autistics on wrongplanet.net and find most people there to be very decent human beings. For whatever reason, it seems as though this forum has attracted some people (certainly not everyone here) who have never learned the basics of human decency, and it only takes a couple of bad apples to ruin it for everyone else.

Bluntly, there is a kind of unfortunate group-think on this newsgroup. One person will start attacking someone, and then others will begin following suit. Sorry, but that is not how I deal with people. My preference is for relating to human beings who treat others humanely. Therefore, I will bow out now.
