Reading the comments I think there is one thing that is not pointed out, our branch also has a lot of "socially handicapped" people. With that, I mean people with autism, Aspergers, social anxiety, and so on. Computers and programming is a perfect escape. These people can come up as rude know-it-alls without that actually being the intention. They just can't feel the situation.

Just wanted to point this out :)

YES! Did we not mention that? The questions and answers we linked to - talk about that. Plus, we are all of different ages, backgrounds, and moods. It's a more complex story than "The bully hit me on the playground."
