Rosarium does not have a disability.  He copes with being smarter than most people very well.  I consider him one of the best posters on FE.

I have seen no evidence that he expects people to give him leeway or that people give it. Plenty of people have criticiized Rosarium before this.  

There are many people who state there opinions in ways that some others do not like.  Many people dislike any opinion that disagrees with their own. There is nothing wrong with posting things that others do not like and therefore nothing to punish.  It is wrong, however, to be deliberately cruel and hurtful as SoCal was.

Yes he does -- he has Asperger's and that is definitely a disability.  I didn't claim that he expects people to give him leeway, but people have indeed given it to him.  Criticisms from the members are one thing, but I'm talking about the Admin's reaction.  I was originally going to post about that, but I changed my mind.  I'll post about it now.  Yes, maybe SoCal was cruel but so has DK been and so have others been, and I don't mean just with respect to Rosarium.  This forum is full of cruel statements, about other posters, about members of the Church, about Jews.  But just becuase the forum owner is related to two people with Asperger's, all of a sudden it's a problem.  it's fundamentally unfair, and that's what I take issue with, really.

Now, let's let this thread go back to being about cigars, please.  If you have more to argue, PM me.
