I come to interact, and have fun. I come to speak my mind, about many things. I come to be myself.

I've just started a not yet popular thread on NHL hockey teams. If it becomes popular, that's great. If it doesn't, at least I've branched out and spoke on a topic, that's random for me.

Some of the more 'popular' members have been subjected to considerable abuse and bullying by some here; so I don't think they always all have things so easy.

I've PMed a few (popular) friends that were bullied so badly that they stopped posting here.

There seem to be a few topics that bring out the absolute worst of humanity in some people here............. :roll: :arrow:

I think I am known for being silly but kind, and my avatar is a pretty woman smiling. Catchy, eh?

You need to find out your "niche".


That's a very good point, actually. I wonder how people see me on here? Probably as a greedy bastard :lol:

I agree about some topics bringing out the worse. I'll post in those threads once and state that's where I stand, so that I don't get attacked, or avoid those topics, all together.

That's because these three have been members for a very long time and plus they give one another respect to each other, while me on the other hand just post to everyone's questions.

Also it depends on how often you post, sometimes if you post often, you'd find that you will become popular and then start getting more positive answers on your help threads.

Also, communicating with other members help, by PM. :P


Are there like certain topics you have to post/respond to to be popular on here?


The way I see it, you have to have a lot of posts to be "popular". Being a member for a very long time also helps things, I think.

I've had lot of posts here and I seemed popular in silence. I got myself popular a few years ago with my fetish threads. I was well known because of my fetish. Even I was popular with the mods, in a bad way.

Then I have been told I am very well liked and some people look up to me. Someone even gave me a appreciation thread.

But I don't feel real popular here. I feel I am blended in with the members.

I have a feeling that those who are popular here are at least somewhat popular in real life. I mean "somewhat" as in they at least have a fair amount of friends. If you're gonna be awkward in real life, chances are you're gonna be somewhat awkward here since aspies cover a wide spectrum of behaviours.

I considered myself popular in high school because everyone knew me but I was not very sociable and I didn't have friends and I wasn't invited to parties and stuff or even asked out. However I did have a prom date once and I have been invited to someone's dance party three times before she moved. Heck even middle school kids knew who I was and so did some elementary school kids. But I didn't know them nor knew their names and who they were. It was obvious I was talked about behind my back or else I wouldn't be known.

People tend to hate my wherever I go. It's just my nature, I guess. I don't mean to be though. :(
