Discussion on: β€œWhat is your current salary?” is a red flag that you don’t want to work here

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.
