When I share with my partner it is by me reading something out. I never share links. There is a balance between sharing something that has resonated with me and keeping this place as something private. I have several times felt the tension of feeling someone I know might benefit from what is on here, but also being quite protective of my presence here. I feel like I don't necessarily want to share what I share here, with my friends, even if they might benefit from the forum. It feels selfish but also like self care. Anonymity is quite valuable.

I've never linked to anyone who isn't autistic other than my partner.
When we aren't together it's easier to send a link than try to explain how to navigate the site.

I don't see the harm in linking to NT people since it might help them understand our POV.
Regardless, I haven't done it.
I like this being our own little world too.

I don't share anything from WP with anyone, especially my parents. For me, what happens on WP stays on WP.

WP discussions might receive a boost via postings on social media.

Most of what happens here on WP I don't share with anyone.

For WP content of interest to the 'Autism Politics, Activism, And Media Representation Forum', WP content potentially becomes ripe for inclusion on social media.

I have passed on stuff about the Judge Rotenberg Center a few times.

No. I'm more liable to shae YouTube videos or tweets.

I find the drama of this site worse than Twitter.

I'm not gonna lie, I show my friends crazy BS from here all the time, like cis people getting unecessarily upset over trans people and other crap. Some of the things people argue about is funny.

Not directly. Both online and IRL, I've talked about stuff that happens on here, but I've never linked to the discussion. (I have a tendency to compartmentalise my life.)

Sometimes the subject (title) of a WP discussion-thread "stands-out" inviting wider interest for those concerned with the Autism Spectrum - regardless of whether or not interest is active here on WP.

For example, one such current WP discusison thread (current as of this writing) in the WP 'General Autism Discussion Forum' is the 'Autistic Burnout Question' thread - a topic deserving (and needing) further mentions/discussions in traditional news-media, and social media outlets alike.
