This is heartbreaking! I feel at home here. I've come to love all of you. Willow, is there any way at all you can save the site? If so, please do. I love Asperclick. It's the only good forum left.

But God commendeth His love towards us, in that whole we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 6:8

Goodbye and God bless each and every one of you.

I still tend to think some years back there was this idea of a happy, harmonious and sociable Asperger community. It sounds nice but ignores the basic drawback that a lot of people with high autism issues are pretty poor socialisers. It seemed to me quite probable many AS forums tended to have high levels of people who likely weren't autistic. This struck me the first time some years ago when Gary Mckinnon faced extradition for hacking into The Pentagon. This guy had been evaluated by psychiatrists as kind of vulnerable. And with autism spectrum. Lots of AS forums had active members who supported the extradition. They clearly didn't understand Mckinnon had very obsessive behaviour and that AS is a factor. This forum at the time had supportive members but overall I was surprised how many sites were shunning Mckinnon. Plus suggesting those with autism spectrum can be totally balanced and in a way regular. Gradually I had more doubts. At the beginning I just assumed all those who identified as Asperger were truly autistic. That raises another paradox however. How do you get those with autism to form any significant group?

I am sorry about that. 😢 You can maybe get people's emails? If you'd like to stay in touch or send them your email?
