As an autodidact, i don't think we are dangerous, cause chaos or should never be hired, these myths are new for me.I respect them but i don't agree with them.
I don't like college, why not ? Well in college you will learn only what your teacher teach you, unless you go and read more about that topic, a lot of people who don't read and don't want to learn more than they learn in class and finish college go to work, they are hired over an autodidact who maybe spend hours reading researching, learning, and really knows what (he|she) is doing.
I've seen this a lot of times here, and for me the best way to learn is the autodidact's way, but until some people break this Paradigm there myths will live.
