Read the whole thing. It's really good -- way better than anything I'm likely to come up with and does a nice job tying in with some of the then-current articles on the subject.
Anestis is careful, professional, polite and thorough in his analysis and argument without in any way conceding his point. I _love_ this.
The first two comments are from Baron Cohen and Anestis and are very collegial without agreeing (a skill I aspire to!). It seems clear from where I sit that Baron Cohen has a fundamentally conservative (not in the anti-gay, anti-abortion sense, but in the must-have-an-excellent-reason-to-change-things-not-just-a-few-good-ones) stance to many, many, many ideas, and Anestis ... does not.
The piece and the followup remarks also manage to stay on topic with respect to real world impacts: they talk about impact on _services_ not impact on _drugs_. There are people prescribing drugs for ASD. They probably should not be doing so, altho comorbidities have to be handled on a case by case basis.
