Blogging milestone; 10,000 visits

I passed the 10,000 visit mark yesterday and have implemented some changes. I will now be accepting anonymous comments, so those of you who were worried that my black helicopters would track you down can now post anonymously.

I didn't want anonymous comments at first because I blog a lot about autism and there are some very nasty characters out there spreading disinformation on mercury, vaccines and such. I have enough material now in my archive that people can know where I am coming from and the level of discourse expected on this blog. I welcome people who disagree with me, but you have to back up your disagreement with facts and logic.

I welcome all comments that add to the discussion, or which ask questions. If I can answer them I will try to do so. All comments get emailed to me, even the ones on posts that are quite old. I am happy to answer question on old posts too. It may be old to me, but not old to anyone else.

O crap, I didn't sign out.

Hey, I never even noticed you have a blog. Looking forward to checking it out.

The ones you might find most interesting are the ones on acute psychosis and the placebo effect.

I heard an interesting result the other day, that there is an inverse correlation between familial alcoholism and autism. I am not sure how to interpret that yet.

I would be interested in any comments you have on my take on things.

Actually I think you are confusing visits with page views. Your page views may have exceeded 10,000 but looking at your site meter statistics you are still under 9,000 visits.

Greetings to you from Evanston, IL. I wonder if you know about this site: http://www.rogernmeyer.com/Hubert_Cross/Asperger%27s_Syndrome_and_Making_Sense_July_2002.htm#K3

As the mom of an Asperger-ish son, I find Hubert's site, and yours, to be very valuable resources. I hope to figure out your publish then delete strategy next. Then, I'll send you my email.

Dear Daedalus..........I was reading your defense of Isis today, and I read your sort of story on a previous post of hers, and just wanted to say that though I cannot remember when I got upset with you, and said mean things, that I am sorry I did so. For real. It is so easy on here to take something that soemone says and make it turn way bigger than it ought to, and most times, people are not trying to be deliberately evil, they are just kind of annoying, or say something that is not really meant to be what it si taken as.............anyway- I have no idea WHO I was writing at then, or where it was, other than Science blogs, and it was at least a year ago- I am sorry for being mean and nasty and saying stuff that I probably would never say to your face if we met.

Anon 4:31. Don't worry about it. Pay it forward do something to make the world a better place.

I have enough trouble remembering important stuff. There are evil people out there and it isn't always easy to tell who is evil and who isn't.

That you have come to change your opinion of me for the better is good for both of us. I hope that helps you to have a better online experience.
