Re: Time to grow up and grow a skin

Given that most programmers are likely high on the Aspergers scale - should they be a protected minority? And therefore people complaining about their behaviour are the real haters?

Mansplaining on a tech forum helps prevent misunderstandings and makes the post more useful to others with slightly different questions or experience.

On the other hand, the documentation I write at work is a sanitised version of my own notes and intended for readers with reasonable experience in the subject matter.
