I can see who this is about. I've found that most really intelligent people in my school seem to be more embarassed about it than smug, but there's the occasional one that is quite smug and superior-acting but quite below (in terms of intelligence) the non-smug ones. In my honest opinion, the only acceptable use of displaying your iq here is when you're quite above the smug ones, to make them shut up. -War129

I like getting to know people really well, then playing mind games with them. - Heir_of_Lindeen

It's been interesting seeing CE5's iq on his userspace go from 140 to 120 to 150. Who thinks he needs to stop faking it?

Now, now, people, let's not go calling names. That wasn't the intention of this work. The intention of this work was to make some people, who very likely are intelligent, consider the effects that stating so has on others. I don't want it to turn into a flame war, so please don't cause one. Please. I'm just hoping that it makes people think.

Sorry, but I feel that even if he does have a lofty iq such as 150, putting it on his userspace is just boasting about it. Isn't very nice to people either way. -War129

hmm. I really have no comment. This very issue has been bothering me for quite a while, but I figured I'd let certain people learn on thier own that people like you for who you are, not who you present yourself to be.

When I was 12 I was happy being a kid...and I knew I was smart too. I was simply happy knowing that I could destroy any person in a battle of wits. I don't know how that matters, but it's just something that popped up in my brains.

I see. You make some good points. You yourself, without having personally boasted of your merits, have given the impression of a mature, intelligent person. I think you made a strong point that boasting of your intelligence only brings about challenges and flaming and hostility. So I agree now with you, the best way to convince people of your intelliegence, at least in the case of the HomestarRunnerWiki, is in practice.
It is annoying seeing entries on the site by people who are dumb and don't think about what they say. I intended to go into an exposition about dumb people and children at this point, but I'll save it for another time.
