There's not much point pointing that out to us, though. It might be true that you've got intelligent people slobbering all over you, but there's no reason for us to believe so. If it's true, but you don't want to prove it, keep it to yourself; however much solace it gives you, you're not going to persuade the unconvinced without proof (or with it, perhaps, but one step at a time).
The point of pointing it out isn't so that other people will acknowledge or even believe me, but that maybe they won't be so quick to believe that their ability to gauge the intelligence of others is quite as accurate as they hoped. By all means, doubt me, but doubt yourself too.
@gbaji; You think whatever you like fella, since I know you're going to anyway. I discussed the issue, by happenstance, with a number of people today, as we reviewed an article from a medical journal. Every one of them understood my argument and wondered how we might get idiots like you to understand it as well. Here, I'll even give you a snippet of the article, mostly in lieu of wasting any more time engaging you:

conveys a physical image; however,
according to Galtung, it is the “avoidable
impairment of fundamental human
needs or…the impairment of human life,
which lowers the actual degree to which
someone is able to meet their needs
below that which would otherwise be
possible” . Structural violence is often
embedded in longstanding “ubiquitous
social structures, normalized by stable
institutions and regular experience” .
Because they seem so ordinary in our
ways of understanding the world, they
appear almost invisible. Disparate access
to resources, political power, education,
health care, and legal standing are just
a few examples. The idea of structural
violence is linked very closely to social
injustice and the social machinery of
Ok, now we're going to get slash fiction of Wint x Kachi somehere... rule 34 and all...
Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.
Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.
