He would make a good journalist for The Sun (a terrible tabloid paper in the UK) if he can make such a dramatic post with no substance. Clearly trolling.

There's a "slurring" quality to his written discourse---which matches his possible intoxication.

There is indeed an odd quality to his wording.

I also looked at his posting history and in another thread he made an attack on the self diagnosed, and said people ought to be made to prove their diagnosis status. He's obviously against this group of people.

And that whole issue is a nasty "old chestnut" that has cause a lot of hurt around WP many times in the past. Which makes me wonder if he's a sock account of someone who is involved in those arguments a lot.

Some of us of an older generation who were not severely autistic, and well past being children/teenagers when Aspergers became a diagnosis, missed the boat when it came to getting a diagnosis . Nevertheless we may have symptoms indicating asd /asd traits -being BAP.
I always thought this place was inclusive of those of us in that position and that attacks against those who are self dxed, for want of ever having the opportunity to be assessed, were a big no no.

In agreement with firemonkey - I was not dx'd till I was 58
