this reads like your threatened by the question which may display inexperienc, this is actually a good question because it allows you to position them, respond by above industry rate, and performance based, one you are indicating your skill set is abnormal and you are use to being accommodated for that, two it shows confidence in that you know what you are talking about, three is pivots the conversation to, how do you currently reward high achievers. and also leans on , can you afford me, can you keep me, tell me more about you before i can answer that question

It seems to me you are talking about the salary expectation question, while the blog is about the "What's your current salary?" question.

There is no relation with a developer skills/value she can brings, and whether or not she was underpaid before. Therefore the "what's your current salary question?" should be rejected as gross and irrelevant.

are you not positioning yourself negatively tho by not displaying the ability to answer that question?
