    If someone attacks you don't hesitate to report the attack from the button, the mods will take the fair course of action about it.

    Have you tried adding a picture? People may remember you easier that way, but I do remember your name from the chat. I think the forums are much more able to convey love and have more things to offer.

    Hi GBWest I never see your name in thread conversations. Try writing on what's listed under hot topic. I never go into chat - too stressful.

    I absolutely HATE chatrooms, a loathing that goes all the way back to the IRC days. Chatrooms have a greater likelihood of somebody saying something offensive. Also, if you ckick the FORUMS tab you can see the list of forums. Start there.

    I've already been lied to about how the forums work. I'd appreciate if you all would stop lying to me.

    Seems like you've got all the points covered. There is no way to respond to you that you don't have a negative reaction toward it. The comments on your Profile are positive, & you say people are lying. And if anyone objects to being called a liar, you call that an attack. I assume this objective observation you will term an attack. It isn't.

    ...But I was lied to about how the forums work. And yelled at for not "getting it."

    I don't know who told you "how the forums work" or what that person or those people told you.

    They said there was a section where 80+% of new threads/posts were located, but all I saw was the standard list to all the subforums. I reported to them this finding, and they yelled at me that it was on that specific page. Never could find it.

    Hmmm. That sounds like a miscommunication. Or a communication that failed due to one person using one sort of device and the other using another. This site looks different depending on what you're using.

    And assuming that is the case, or even simpler, different web browsers... When several people start yelling at me and calling me stupid and so forth for not finding the right page, how do you think I'm going to react? Whether any one likes it or not, every one is a representative of any group they are a member of, and thus the group's reputation can be heightened or lowered depending on each individuals actions.

    It appears you have been judging a group/site of thousands of members, on the basis of a small sample of its membership.

    Every one does that. There are numerous ways to prove so.

    I don't recognize it, myself, from that description.

    There are tabs for Recent Activity and New Posts. New Threads, Hot Topics, and New Profile Posts are under chat (the way I have my page laid out.) Clicking Home displays a list of the 10 most recently posted threads [over to the right].

    I see that. And a list under with various subgroups of topics.

    That doesn't change the fact that I was told this would be a good place for me to come get help with some things in my life, and instead I get smacked down every day.

    Since Tuesday, in this section of your Profile, 4 people have engaged you in positive interactions.

    4 girls (I'll be nice and count you) and one guy. So 20% of them, I'll probably respond to, and have a real conversation.

    Since joining the site? I've already had to block 20ish people, of all shapes and sizes. So 4% success rate... Okay.

    I don't follow the math on that. Please explain how you derived the "success rate."

    1 out of 25 people, thus far, are persons I would share details of my life with, and thus acquire meaningful advice.

    How did you pick the number 25?

    Five people posting on this status thread, plus 20 who I've blocked. If I add all people I've interacted with on the site thus far, it grows beyond 25, with good interactions staying insanely low, dropping success rate below 4%.

    This is all literally three of my posts above this one...

    I already answered that question...

    I don't trust females. I don't trust moderators and administrators of websites. And I will not give people who are jerks a second chance.

    If people made fun of you for having AS, would you keep talking to them?

    Thus, success rate of meeting people worth talking to: 4% or less thus far on this site.
