I have Aspergers and when I explained this to staff members who have attacked me over things I've said which they misinterpreted, and tried to explain what I really meant, I was basically told "tough luck" because what they say goes and their personal interpretation of what you say is the only meaning they will accept. It's happened to a few other Autistic Hexians as well from what I've heard. So, in all honesty? Avoid the bigger global mods and staff members/admins where you can because otherwise you might regret it if one of them reads you wrong and doesn't care to ask you for clarification. It's not worth the trouble. 95% of the regular users are very nice and understanding about the Autism spectrum though so don't shy away from talking about it if you need to.

Don't worry about needing to avoid staff. Also, staff are held to the same rules as everyone else - so feel free to report any behavior (even from staff) that is rude or could be considered bullying/discrimination.

You do not need to avoid anyone - that's BS. Staff are very understanding and helpful, although it may be a decent idea to include the statement that Morgana recommended on your RB.

Avoid all senior and junior staff along with global moderators. There are some good forum and sub forum moderators who are more understanding. I would suggest putting "Please be patient with me, I have ASD and struggle with socializing." on the random burst under your picture. That should help a lot more with all of the mods.
