That way we can all save time and effort in responding to his
requests
for information when he ignores it anyway as it does not fit with
his pre-
conceived ideas.

On the occasions that one can converse with him while he is not fully
"on message", it's quite possible to have a pleasant enough
discussion
on a number of topics, and he will usually be helpful and generous
with
his skills and experience.
*A bigger question might be (by comparison), what sort of

has 'Bev' made to the group and how fairly are they dealing out the
victimisation?

Note sure if that is the bigger question, or just a case of shooting
the messenger?

There are plenty that lurk here and post infrequently, if at all.
That does not mean they are going to relish a relentless barrage of
proselytising any more than the rest of us. Be that a former
poster's incessant messages on "cultural enrichment", or a blow by
blow posting commentary from Mr speeds' vegetable peeler paramour!

There are lots of online tests for locating one's place on the
Autistic spectrum. Aspergers syndrome may be more relevant for those
at the intelligent end.


For those at the intelligent end they can learn empathy, effect and
result. A fanatic by definition is not going to be at the 'intelligent
end'.


Thats mindless bull****. There have in fact been
lots of intelligent fanatics like Pauling for example.


As soon as you say "mindless bull****" what you then say is discredited.

Anyway, even after looking up Linus Pauling nothing associates him with
being a fanatic.

My results don't lead to a *seek help urgently* recommendation but
certainly not *middle of the road* normal:-)


I would put it in the 'recommended' area if only to show their
campaign is counterproductive.
