    I love Hovercraftdoggy. I go there when I need to retreat from the stress of neurotypical social-relational navigation. Not that I do that much in person, but sometimes, Facebook and other online media, useful as they are to us Aspies, and admittedly less stress than in-person encounters, can nevertheless still be stressful.
