It is problematic. This whole issue began after I started posting here and mentioned that I am a college professor. I immediately found myself getting attacked, first by ____ and then by ____, including being called psychotic by the latter. If people had a better sense of themselves, they would not be likely to feel threatened by others.

Now, I realize that my post will likely make these individuals want to respond to me. However, I am not stupid. I have run into this sort of petty jealousy, name calling, etc. before.

I am just a guy – one who was fortunate enough to have gotten some good breaks along the way. I have my own views like anyone else, my own struggles, my own disappointments, and my own periods of depression (like most aspies I know). The fact that I have been singled out for this kind of abuse is, IMO, very disappointing.

> Mark certainly is full of himself, isn’t he?
