I found this news article which spells it out very well. Namely the issue is that a previously solely aspie run forum has ‘sold out’ and taken thousands of dollars from Autism Speaks in return for running videos that advertise and promote the dodgy curebie org.

I have just discovered a somewhat dated thread on the wrongplanet.net web page which has the slogan “autism=good” in the title bar of the browser when one logs onto this stellar website.

It goes on with the members of wrongplanet questioning why Alex Plank would go hat in hand to autism speaks, an organization who has described autism as a global health crisis and clearly does not share the “autism is good” philosophy of WP, why Alex Plank and his friend Jack “Cubby” Robison would solicit (and be given) funding by AS for their autism talk TV show.
