My quote referred to Java Junkie. He's the typical Asperger Syndrome, all symptoms fit perfectly.

too goddamn true, all publicity is good. I LOVE the bad publicity better than the good anyway.

fuckem. I love it when they quote buddhaghosa as a 'reference' for buddhism.

mental midgets abound.

@ Jure - Your whole post is a cut/paste from Wikipedia, LOL!


If that be the case, I would plead "The Martha Mitchell Effect"


According to Bell et al., "Sometimes, improbable reports are erroneously assumed to be symptoms of mental illness," due to a "failure or inability to verify whether the events have actually taken place, no matter how improbable intuitively they might appear to the busy clinician."


So, we let the Wiki Psychiatrists settle the matter? No? Why not!

Asperger syndrome, also known as Asperger's syndrome or Asperger disorder, is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction, alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests.

Asperger syndrome is distinguished by a pattern of symptoms rather than a single symptom. It is characterized by qualitative impairment in social interaction, by stereotyped and restricted patterns of behavior, activities and interests, and by no clinically significant delay in cognitive development or general delay in language.

Intense preoccupation with a narrow subject, one-sided verbosity, restricted prosody, and physical clumsiness are typical of the condition.

The lack of demonstrated empathy is possibly the most dysfunctional aspect of Asperger syndrome. Individuals with AS experience difficulties in basic elements of social interaction, which may include a failure to develop friendships or to seek shared enjoyments or achievements with others (for example, showing others objects of interest), a lack of social or emotional reciprocity, and impaired nonverbal behaviors in areas such as eye contact, facial expression, posture, and gesture.

I am sure The Zennist is excited although this guy to whom your URL refers seems to be small potatoes. Any negative or positive publicity serves The Zennist well.
