I would try and destroy it (which is technically a vote for "yes I'll join").

I have to say I'm not sure whether the positives of everyone being admins outweigh the bad.   Some of the positives are obviously the chaos and no power struggles.  But the bad points- people having access to IP addresses who perhaps shouldn't have imo, and the potential for it to become one endless prankfest (possibly a good point too).

agreed. i wouldn't want everyone to have admin access.

I think it might just turn out to be one big cluster fuck though and not be around long
Too many bosses is not always a good thing it just fucks things up

That's why it would be an experiment. Not that I'm committed
to THAT particular principle. Something else could be preferable.

Of course, democracy would turn you off (and maybe others
who might rather try this). Plus, democracy is too likely to
solidify cliquish behavior. Something I'm hoping to avoid.

Hell, maybe the problem is that some of the people here
were refugees from cliques which were in power, at WP.
And were removed for engaging in just such actions. But,
it would seem that equality is the best answer to that. Or
tyranny, but most web sites do THAT.

i believe in tyranny if i'm the tyrant. i would rule with a guilded iron fist and make everything better. :zoinks:

my first supportar! :toporly:

Why does it have to be aspie-only?

Aspies and NTs integrate (somewhat) in real life. It would add to the chaos for sure.

TBH I don't know if I'd be diagnosed with AS or something else or nothing at all if I had a formal diagnosis.

How can you tell if someone is really an aspie online anyway? Not making proper eye-contact with the webcam?

I find the idea of aspie sites rather elitist and only contributing to alienation.

i've been on NT sites and i have to say aspie sites are more to my liking. you do know the difference. there is one.

One of the theories. As I see it, there would essentially be
a vetting period, rather like there was with the WC here.
I wouldn't want some looney to go off the edge. But,
that's a danger, no matter what.

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want to be the guy responsible for backups if everyone was an admin. Not worth the headaches.
I know, I know, it's just that I don't know what should be there. :GA:
Could put some awesome Jack quote in there.

My mind boggles at the very thought, but, it would be an interesting experiment!!  Everybody having control and yet nobody having overriding control.  It would certainly make the inevitable flame wars fascinating to say the least.   :-\

It would take exactly one aspie to bring an end to it.
