    I have an autism spectrum disorder known as Asperger's Syndrome, and the fact that I live with my parents, who constantly argue all the time, has driven me nuts these days.

    I'm stepping away from posting diaries/comments on DailyKos and DKE for good. If you want to read my new blog, here it is. That's the only place I feel comfortable writing about politics anyways.

    Polls don't vote, statistics don't vote, history doesn't vote, yard signs don't vote...PEOPLE VOTE!!!

      We don't have a problem with you being here. We're just saying that you have a tendency to post a lot of extraneous material, and that such material might be more relevant for other parts of the site than for DKE. My brother has Asperger's Syndrome, so I understand some of the difficulties that can come with that. You're welcome to be here, and I think you've contributed worthwhile material in the past. We're just trying to explain (to varying degrees) that some material is worth posting and that some of it isn't. I hope you stick around and continue to contribute worthwhile material to the community. I think you could have a lot to offer.

        I read sometimes comments toward DownstateDemocrat that sound too critic and too hard. I know not him but I feel the need this time to defend him a little.

        Now as example he has an humble answer to your comment and he really should not.

        I know not exactly about previous disputes or in the name of who are you talking, but well, this site has rulers and they are good rulers that know when they must tell to a person to stop.

        I think it would be good to let the guy posting free. His post was not bad. I feel not damage with his post. Your strong answer was worse for me. Too hard. Unnecessarily hard.

        To talk about elections is not as strong rule here. In fact. We break it sometimes and it is not bad. As example we break it when a former politician dies, when there is a scandal that affect to a former politician (like Dale Peterson recently), when we do some jokes, or in many other cases. Many times are not things directly related with concrete elections.

        I think we can enjoy all together. Not? Your last answer, a lot better for me.

      However, you need to discern what is really worth posting about here. Ask yourself if someone other than you would care about it; if the answer is no, then don't post it.

      Easier said than done, I know, but try keeping that in mind FYI.
