"1. PPR
This is a special forum. It is for debating and as such pretty much anything goes provided it stays within the site rules and the following guidelines. It is more or less freedom of speech. It doesn't matter if some people have obnoxious or ill-informed opinions regarding politics, religion or virtually anything else. People can debate and criticize any religion, atheism, political party, public figures etc. Just because some members may belong to a particular religion (or atheism) or political party, does not exclude it from debate. If people want to criticize atheism that is fine. Criticise Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Paganism, Confucianism, Judaism, Satanism, Scientology etc all fine too."

This wasn't set up to be a 'warm and fuzzy' place and it's worth noting
that not all folks on the Autism Spectrum are alike. Not all of us have
Thin Skin; not all of us are STEM Majors; in Fact, Science Shows as far as "higher functioning" goes close to
two-thirds are not. And yes, some of us are both literally and metaphorically Jacks and Jills of most all Trades of Life,
Dark and Light. Highlight the Phrase "more or less Freedom of Speech" above as in this way the Forum has been
Increasingly Failing for Years as that is what brings some folks on the Spectrum here most to hear a Different
View and of course mileage and make varies on that among folks on the Spectrum too. For instance, it
wasn't too long ago that a Moderator did a mock exorcism on me for "Breaking the Internet" whatever
the Hell that means in Terms of Freedom of Speech. I Used to use all Caps for emphasis that wasn't
okay for me but okay for others now. I do my best to reach the Edge of the Page now but i am
NeuroDiverse
and rather
Averse
to Linear think.
This doesn't Look like
the Section for you as it's
true online there are Doors
and in Terms of folks more averse
or less averse to the 'Wild of Communication",
it's easy enough to go to a different room one feels comfortable in.
That's what I do but no room scares me as i've got a Few Stripes on my Back; more than a few with Scar Tissue Enough..;)

And to be clear, I said it is worth noting; I have no idea what your understanding of these issues are; And I'm Always
Polite but if you are 'different here', ironically, in someways that's the easiest way to Piss other folks off; nice or not;
it doesn't make me Angry but it is overall amusing as I enjoy Irony. In Fact, I enjoy Every thing; In Fact, I Live in
Heaven Real Now within and on the outside too; In Fact, I have enough Empirical Evidence that it's true
and other People can and will likely achieve it too. Smiles, You'd be amazed at all the People who
are both Metaphorically and Literally Averse to Achieve Real Heaven now; perhaps, if they Really
go to 'Hell' like I did for 66 months; they might have a Change of Will that Feels more like Love.

That's not for me to decide, with Smiles again..:)

And again unless you are really Interested in Occasional
Nuggets of Wisdom in a Tar Baby Thorn Patch, I can't imagine why anyone would
come here at all; and they just don't do it much anymore; Clear from Views of Participation.

And on top of that the Moderator Jobs here are Thankless as I was offered one back when
I Lived in 'Hell' and had no choice but to turn it down. And there is Still no way in 'Hell' I would
do it as I can't imagine Herding Cats and actually believing I could do it. So, I Have no complaints
if anyone exorcises me as if that gives 'em a Smile more Power to 'em; And After all in Poem i've written
A Literal and Metaphorical 6 Million Word Bible Poem and do what most folks fear the most even more than
Public Speech; yes, Dancing In Public for close to 10K Miles too in 5 years in "Trump State Foot Loose Towns"
in the Deep Bible States of the Gulf Coast Southern US of Let's Make 'Murica Great Again. Hey, If I can get away
with what
I do here
at Home
without getting
Shot in Public it ain't so bad
at all for those who are Brave enough to actually Do Free in all the ways that comes..;)

Any way; Welcome to the Wrong Planet.

Not likely anyone else will but i ain't afraid of Reciprocal Social Communication for yes
too I can go Super Introvert or Extrovert Both ways with ease and here where Informal Polls
that were Huge and Very Well Participated in showed that 95 Percent of Folks are Introverted here;
Most folks on then Autism Spectrum are but some folks are most definitely not in all the ways that comes too..:)

As far as Special Interests and Laser Focus And Doing it; no one else does it in Longer ways of doing two things like
Song of Poetry and Dance of Feet like me; no one and I do mean no one on record at least has me beat anywhere now.

I am one of those 'Super Autistic Folks' as a Savant of Spirit of HeART Soul also strange enough to be Bi-Polar too; others
like
me
have
come before.
i am too F in SmArt NoW to get Hung or whatever; hAha..;)

Have a Nice Day; I Write it Down in Song of Words And Dance it in Feat of Feet And 'it' HapPens Now Without Fail
And that is just one of Many Ways to Heaven NoW That is Real my Friend; Oh yeah, I see everyone as Friends and that
Pisses people
off too; i would
lose but i WiLL aLWays Love to Win this way too; And it F in Works at Least for Me; Meeker Stronger with Will On a Foundation of Grace as Balance and Love And All That Jazz of Fearless too. I don't just Study Philosophy or Religion or Politics and just Repeat it back like a Canary in a Coal Mine. I actually Dance it and Sing it anew reneWed every now and it shouldn't really be any Wonder why i visit 'this place' too as all of Life is Religion and God and Love to me no matter what.

Political discussion is just an ordinary facet of life. This forum has areas to discuss literature, television, film, games, technology, science, mathematics, love, socialising, education, everyday life, problems, women's issues and even sex.

It may be seen as a forum for everybody but it's clearly targeted largely towards adults, and contains many mature areas of discussion. Politics is mature, and in politics you can skirt close enough to mud slinging that it doesn't quite equate to insult but is edging its way there ever so slightly. It's a place to be slightly more lax with social taboos and express what you really believe.

What's funny is that discussing whether or not politics should be discussed is politics. It refers to any legitimate social or economic concerns and queries that the world as a whole has to offer.

Whilst I understand your concerns, that's the nature of politics. Nobody is really forced to be here or participate.

Those members who simply cannot handle disagreements or differences in subjective opinions are better off posting in The Haven forum, which is where they are more likely to find coddlers, enablers, and others who seem more concerned with getting along with each other than in solving problems or providing useful ideas.

Have you seen a political or religious conversation where people were mocking each others' beliefs where problems actually got solved?
Yes. I have served on city councils and church leadership committees, where that type of behavior is not only tolerated, but considered normal for those who want to get measures passed and activities accomplished.

Welcome to WrongPlanet. We hope that you will enjoy your stay and contribute to the community.

If you are looking for the perfect place, one where you will never encounter conflict or disagreement, then you will never find it.

1. Wrong Planet is a site geared toward autistic people. Autistic people often are "blunt", "direct" "rude" not because they want to hurt and offend people but because of the lack of understanding of social rules and the use of indirect wording. They may not know how to be both nice and direct. It is just the way we are wired.

2. Wrong planet is not a pure support site. It is also a discussion forum and a place where people are allowed to be themselves in a way they can't be in a non autistic world. This means that sometimes things are written in a direct manner that is unintentionally or perceived as insulting.

3. Because of bullying, some autistics are very sensitive to slights or perceived bullying. Others autistics develop a thick skin.

4. This section is more loosely moderated compared to other sections. It is not for support. Political issues are often emotional ones, people get upset and say mean and offensive things.

5. The Heaven is for specifically there for support and the most tightly moderated section of this site with the strictest rules.

6. Wrong Planet is not a free for all, there are rules and things you can not say such as racist statements or personal attacks.

7. At the beginning of each section, there are site rules listed. You can report a thread or a post to the moderators if you think the rules are being violated.

8. Wrong Planet has a wide variety of people. One should not judge a whole site based on a run in with one member.

It's also worth noting in Real Flesh and Blood Life where Folks Inhabit 'Life' now with 'Normal' Emotional
Intelligences, People Treat each other More Like Humans with Respect than Science Projects to be Solved;
Nature of the Beast as 'they' say; it is what it is, too. I don't have any Problems now with People
Mocking me to my Face in Flesh and Blood Life, even when I Public Dance Free Style Ballet Mixed
with Martial Arts; along with Leg Pressing Half a Ton 52 reps in Strength Standing 6 feet plus and
240LBS, now too; sure, size matters too; and overall Martial Arts Skills as it's worth Noting that's
Part of How Muhammad Ali came to Float before he Stung and Bruce Lee
Became 'the Water', not having to Prove his so-called Manhood anymore;
Yes, they did Ballet and Discovered Real Strength is in being the
Original Greek Definition of Meek that Means Fearless Will in
Grace of Strength in Balance where An Ocean of Calm
Means A Real Potential
of Raging of Waves
in Real Life
one
has not encountered before, too.
Anyway, such is life in the Real Big City.
Anyway, online is a place of Faceless Avatars where
there is no real worry of 'Real' Retribution with Ad Hominem attacks except Automatically
Losing the Debate from the Get Go at the Lowest Level of Critical Think; there are more Intelligent Words to choose.
And 'Real Men' Like Obama acted always with Respect as 'Real' Political Leaders Do where other 'Men' are tiny no matter how
much they
weigh now
in Secret or Real
as it simply shows with their overall
Attitude about Life at Peace or the other place(s).
Realistically and Statistically Speaking from a Quick Overview of the Folks Still Posting here; if that standard were really held up, there might not be enough people to keep the forum even going; no doubt, I'm not the only who sees this reality.
And to be even More Clear, many City Councils and Churches are the Same way as they just don't have enough Humans
who have evolved in one life as truly respecting of other Human Natures; Nature of the Beast, again, as People who are
all filled up with Love don't usually go seeking so-called Positions of 'Power and Status' for a Space almost impossible
to Feel and Fill Within Without Love that gives and shares free out of just the Joy to Live Love incarnate at Highest Levels
Of 'Real Human' Potential now. And additionally, some People Just don't get the warm and fuzzies from Human
contact and that's a Sad and Numb Fact of Life too; People who do, copiously, look at mocking other folks like
mocking their own selves as that is what people in effect do when they do this clear to us with 'Real' Love now.
