Diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, explains a lot. Asperger's is a highly functional form of Autism that impairs the part of the brain that recognizes social protocol, basically I am highly evolved intellectually but retarded socially. I think this explains a lot, not a damning form of autism, I am still after all highly intelligent, just unable to recognize when I am pissing someone off or saying something viewed as inappropriate.

Hope the AV community better understands my Transformers OCD and other aspects of who I am now.
Symptoms were there in hindsight, always knew I was different in some ways. Glad I know how now.
This changes nothing about me, except now I know why some perceive me as rude or abrasive, I honestly mean no hostility to anyone.
