Added a new page to the UFO debunking the pervasive "Autism Epidemic" myth, and fixed a typo in the Autism-Tinted Glasses article that @bmh pointed out.

This has to be my favorite "UFO" post so far, too! That quote by Ted Kaczynski is perfect. Although I don't agree with everything he says, he makes a ton of good points about the modern world and the devastating effects of the Industrial Revolution.

Thank you so much, @holeinmyheart and @cyberwitch!! I admit I have not yet read all of Ted Kaczynski's Manifesto, the parts I did read all make stunningly good points. I suppose that's the reason they locked him up in such a draconic fashion - they don't do that to people who are just ranting and raving about nothing.

I understand what he did was wrong (sending bombs to people), but letting Harvard get away with its experiments on him and other undergraduates at the time was really no better. Yet, people are angrier at him than the society that poisoned him (and continues to poison the rest of us + the environment).

As well as autistic people and introverts, the modern world probably causes problems with those suffering from PTSD and anxiety related illnesses. My partner has PTSD (for various reasons) and he was once in the police, and after that worked quite high up in the marketing department of a company, along with other jobs and I considered him to better at dealing with authorities and such like than I am.

Since he had is last breakdown (which is almost 10 years ago, now), he finds dealing with banks, the council, etc, very difficult and stressful.

@cyberwitch Sadly, that's modern western society in a nutshell. The organised powers-that-be can blatantly get away with anything they want, but any of us regular peons are utterly screwed if we do anything to fight back. It's no wonder the planet is going straight to the dogs, and has been for over 100 years now.

@bright-eyes No doubt about that. The modern world issues that I mentioned (sensory issues brought on by technology, and having to constantly interact with and make positive impressions on complete strangers) are liable to be hellish for anyone who has anxiety and/or PTSD. Autistic people often have at least one of those due to childhood experiences too, so it's a double/triple whammy.

Very thought-provoking (in my opinion at least) new autism article coming in a few hours! Just waiting until 24 hours passes since the previous update so that it'll show up as its own thing on the timeline. Stay tuned!

Thank you for the encouragement, @cyberwitch! I just chalk it up to my inability to ever shut up about things that I'm interested in. (:

I added some new affiliates (followers.) That is all. Make sure to check out the article about the Double Empathy Problem from yesterday over at the UFO if you haven't seen it yet!

I found that the problem for finding websites came when Yahoo got rid of their website directories and became more focused on news and advertising. You could use their directory to find sites relevant to whatever you were looking for. That's not to say that they had everything listed, but it was easier to find interesting sites.

One of the most annoying sites for burying others is pinterest. When you search for images now, a lot of the ones that come up point to their website and it's almost impossible to find the original source because people use it to collect things that they want to refer back to. It would be great if the pages could be set to private so only the user sees what they've collected, but not useful for others.

Thank you for the clarification, @justfluffingaround! I will update the description later today, when I will hopefully be putting up another new article.

Thank you for your comments, @bright-eyes! Those are some excellent points. I actually really adored those old Yahoo! directories and have fond hours of looking through every single website it had for various topics. Yet another wonderous thing killed off by Yahoo! out of sheer greed, along with Geocities. Curlie and Wiby are the closest we have to that tool on the modern Web.

I added a new page to the UFO detailing the Double Empathy Problem, and the inherent issues with the golden rule. I know I've been lagging badly on adding new followers to the Affiliates list and I will hopefully get around to that tomorrow!

Anothing insightful read. I recently read your autismglasses page and could certainly relate to a lot of your experiences (btw, there is a typo in the 'Eye contact' heading) ;-)

Thank you so much for pointing that typo out, @bmh! I have no idea both how that happened, and how I never caught it myself...

I want some normie to ask me if I'm getting vaccinated so that I can make an autism joke, just to see how they react. Something like "nah, I heard vaccines cause autism, and I'm scared it'll cancel out my autism and make me boring" or "I don't need to be vaccinated, I already got 'infected' with autism from reading 4chan without wearing a mask."

Thank you for the follow, and the very kind Guestbook comment!! I love your website design, especially the marquee on the top! It's refreshing to see one of those on the modern Web.

Of course and thank you! I thought the marquee was a nice way to show things were under construction without disrupting the rest of the flow of the webpage and I totally agree. I've been having a lot of fun breaking "the modern web rules" on my site so far and hope to do a lot more!
