I was talking with my wife who works as a school teacher for autistic/downs kids and she told me that Autistic kids (and those with Asperger's syndrome) have a hard time interpreting social cues (facial cues, underlying tones and meanings, etc...) This could easily be extrapolated to include forum interactions (where I've seen lots of normal people misinterpret posts). Basically, I think what we have here is a failure to communicate. Jez+Lee is misconstruing criticism as negative feedback. This in turn leads to negative feedback through the natural course of conversation (i.e. like talking to a wall). My guess is that he's not able to process criticism / negative feedback correctly and therefore doesn't. He's also failing to connect lack of feedback with lack of interest. I can think of two solutions: Stop critiquing his work on a commercial level This is along the lines of 'ignore him and he'll go away' but with a more positive spin. Critiques would be limited to 'nice job' and positive feedback with all things considered. Worst case scenario is that we adopt a person who continuously posts on the forums. Future members will attempt to provide feedback and we'll have to PM them and let them know what's up. Treat him like a spam-bot If he continues to repost and circular link posts then he's not much more than a spammer. The difference is that because he sees things in black and white and is prone to repetitive behavior he's not much more than a bot. I'm not a mean spirited person and it would suit me just fine to stop responding to his posts with anything more than 'nice job' or 'nice work'. Your opinion... Yeah, he's pissed a lot of people off, but given his condition, his behavior is understandable. What are your thoughts? I especially want to hear from those whom he rubbed the wrong way. All thoughts are valid (even negative ones). We're a professional forum and adults. We're not picking on the slow kid. Be honest.
