Sebastian Ivor Ramadan. Not here. Here and here. Good luck. I'm outties!

autism /ˈɔːtɪz(ə)m/ noun. a mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by great difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts.

StackOverflow is discriminating (illegally). From an ethical standpoint, if you won't allow people to refer themselves as "mentally retarded" (as I choose to identify) then you shouldn't allow people to refer to themselves using any of the encompassed or equivalent terminologies. Mentally ill, handicapped, they're all equivalent, and if one isn't permitted, none should be... hence, StackOverflow is engaging in discrimination by censoring peoples pseudonyms.

I want my pseudonym back, which I am legally entitled to, according to the CC-BY-SA 3.0 license which must be enforced (rather than violated) by community moderation:

When You Distribute or publicly perform the Work or any Derivative Work or Collection You must provide, in a manner reasonable to the medium or means You are using:

  • the name or pseudonym (if provided) of the Original Author and/or of any other party (such as a sponsor institute, publishing entity or journal) that the Original Author or Licensor has requested be attributed (such as in the copyright notice or terms of use). In this clause 4C these parties are referred to as "Attribution Parties";

StackOverflow has violated their license with all of us by violating this condition of licensing. All licenses with creators on StackOverflow are hereby legally void according to the termination section of the license:

This Licence and the rights granted to You under this Licence shall terminate automatically upon any breach by You of the terms of the Licence.
