Know your audience- then do as you please ;)
A teacher once gave me a grade of C for an A+ oral report based on the ignorance of my audience, "Know your audience, the students do not understand your reference to the 'I have a dream' speech". I learned to be more careful of who I choose to surround myself with and to not stay in an institution that assumes ignorance from it's members. I learned that sometimes it's OK to speak over someone's head, and other times it's good to filter, so as not to get that glossed over look. Whether I honor the learning or not, thanks to what I still think was an unfair grade, I wont ever forget the words "Know your audience".
