Your humility poke was apt!
My parents and brother, although all being gifted, squirm when I bring up this forum or some book I read on giftedness. They may have raised gifted children, but talking about it in depth makes them uncomfortable (it's an unfair thing, isn't it?)
I can't claim the humility they have, although I do try.
I will continue to defend the point that I, and many of the posters on this thread were not being intentionally insensitive, but I do so, knowing full well, that my family would never have spoken that comment even amongst themselves.
Sometimes, I like not being censored (even if the reasons are valid).
