Actually, that statement is DUMB. You can have a high IQ and have AS. A number DO! You can CERTAINLY be 20, male, and have AS! You could even be good looking and have AS! You could be RICH and have AS! You might even think you are what is considered popular, and have AS.

Garyww, I joined June 19 2008 and have 2431 posts. It's not like I'm on here to cause problems. I just see an interesting topic and respond. If I see an interesting post I'll reply. Why do I have to give my name, rank and social security number just to do that?

I joined in 2006 so what does that have to do with anything?

Garyww, I don't ask you personal questions. Besides, it says under your avatar you joined Nov 29 2008.

I'm not sure what it is. I can assure you this is my only account on WP if that's what you are worried about.

I am not worried about anything. I used to log in a just gary but for some reason the site decided to make me change it to garyww after they got a lot of gary guys registering.

Most people do but that's okay as it really makes it interesting talking to people who are off target at the outset.

OK, so the Asperger people coming to you with life problems probably seems somewhat ironic. But the lower-functioning people have really insightful and pithy comments. Some of the best stuff on the site.

Post in this type of thread seem to make people tired for some reason and I personally am to stupid to make much sense of anything posted anyhow so maybe the last poster is correct.

Something tells me we aren't being entirely clued in on that one...
what is really going on?

Methinks a detail or two might be missing...

I might be wrong. But I think that garyww was making fun of the high functioning Asperger people who come here looking for advice for problems, even thought their lives seem much better than most AS.

So I said that the lower-functioning AS give great advice. They are wise and go to the heart of the problem. Sometimes the stuff they say is the best stuff on the website.

Many people miss the point of most of my posts since I don't seem to have the right combination of word constructions to get my point across but I really do try to be clear in my expressions.
