    The fact that his brain doesn't work right doesn't grant him a license to ass. To be discriminatory against him you'd have to treat him differently due to his condition, not treat him the same.

    Saying "gosh darn it" will get you a warning from Umbran.

    But isn't asperger's essentially all about being an ass 'cause you don't understand social niceties and social cues? If he can't make those distinctions, kinda unfair to pick on him for it. Anyway, I'm sure that this has been debated before to death but it just seemed interesting that KenM and Razz both have intellectual difficulties with socialisation and were singled out for banning. I'd go into my own difficulties but everybody here already (thinks) they know everything about me and since the only person (that matters) knows what my problem was, it's a moot point

    Hey, does anyone know of a site like ENW where I can go to get news about and discuss D&D? I'd go to RPG.net, but... it smells.

    It doesn't matter. Dyslexics don't get a pass for driving on the wrong side of the road. Epileptics don't get a pass for mowing people down while driving their car through the market.

    It may be rude or insensitive to not make certain allowances for his condition depending on the situation, but it's certainly not discriminatory to hold him to the same metrics as anyone else. He had plenty of second chances and blew through them all.

    Fuck him, because nobody else will.

    And I'm a sociopath, so having to obey laws to not casually improve the gene pool is very unfair!

    True, but you're our sociopath so we're okay with it.

    For you, the day Umbran graced your post was the most important day of your EN World life. But for him... it was Tuesday.

    There are plenty of folks who happen to function perfectly fine with issues like that. Besides, freedom of speech doesn't mean you can say whatever you want wherever you want.

    I believe I caught 4 different KenM alts before I was an Enworld Mod. He wasn't very good at hiding them (same avatar, same links, same home town, sometimes even a similar name).
