I think we are all fine examples of geeks with the expected high IQ's 
and Aspie tendencies.

As they say, "Quality comes at a price" :-)

Two of my nephews were recently diagnosed with ASD's and I've learnt a 
fair bit about it... and recognise so many traits in myself, and my 
older son! It's made me wonder if I should get tested too. Not 
surprisingly, I also see these tendencies in other LUG members.

As it's a "spectrum" there is much variety - but we seem to be a pretty 
amenable bunch, with few falling outs...

I think we should celebrate it, not hide from it!
