Censoring in the Name of Editing[edit]

Global Burden study[edit]

Doc James, the Global Burden study looks like it says Asperger syndrome affects an estimated 31,100*1000 people to me, i.e., 31.1 million, rather than 29 million. Am I reading that correctly? KateWishing (talk) 02:54, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. I mistyped. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 02:56, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

DSM-5 vs ICD-10[edit]

There is a substantial distinction between the American subsumption of Asperger's into "autism spectrum disorder" and the international, ICD-10 practice of maintaining the distinction. American medical accounts are billed under the ICD, not under the DSM. Accordingly, there is a substantial dispute among bureaucrats as to whether Asperger's is indistinguishable from "autism spectrum disorders." This issue needs to be written into the article. Are there any objections to my doing so? Svend la Rose (talk) 00:03, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

You'll need sources that comment on the issue. As this is a pretty mature article, maybe bring it here first for comment. Dbrodbeck (talk) 00:07, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

New wikipedian category for us aspies ....[edit]

I have created this new category for us bunch that have Aspergers: Category:Wikipedian aspies

It is in the same format as:

But we already have: Category:Wikipedians with Asperger syndrome - shouldn't this just be a redirect or something? (Can you have redirected categories? I have no idea.)
Anyway - it's a duplicate - and we shouldn't have it. SteveBaker (talk) 05:47, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

The vaccine thing has been[edit]

...put to bed and debunked as junk science at this point, right? --RThompson82 (talk) 01:18, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
