Tact Filter

Geeks have an incoming tact filter
Normal people have an outgoing tact filter

A geek can have a conversation to another geek and not find offense because the geek filters everything incoming.  so if one geek says something tactless to the other geek, by way of accident or bad choice of words, the receviing geek will process that comment and filter out the tactlessness and be able to understand what the person was really saying.    Geeks EXPECT to have to post process the conversation.

A normal person can have a conversation with a normal person and not find offense because they preprocess the conversation and filter out anything tactless before its said so that the receiver of the comment doesn't find offense.
Thats because the normal people expect pre processing of the conversation

A Geek Cannot have a functional conversation with a Normal person because the filters dont work,     The geek will say something tactless to the normal person and the normal person will find it highly offensive and that's the end of the friendship.   Theres no functional post or pre proccessing of this conversation.
