For the last month or so other bloggers and I have been pointing out the serious ethical problems of Autism Speaks. Last week, one of the board members, Jon Shestack, wrote a personal note to those like me who have been critical of Autism Speaks, asking for us to use restraint in our criticism and to give AS the time to answer our charges on the merits. He also called on the board of Autism Speaks to do some soul searching to see if it was time for them to change direction.
Well more than a week has gone by since then, Jon Shestack has been arguing with some in the ND crowd, but no one at AS seems to be offering the "defense on the merits" that we are supposed to be waiting for.
So exactly how long are we supposed to wait patiently?
