We're geeks. We're used to being treated as odd or weird, as antisocial or as "differently social", as unfathomable and hard to understand. This is of course incredibly annoying (at least when we don't tune it out), but it conceals a far bigger annoyance. We geeks are in danger of being labeled in another way, a way that will affect our jobs and careers and opportunities.
We're in danger of being considered too smart to give advice too.
