Let's keep it simple: is it classy to brag, yes or no?
You know what, you're right. Your incisive wit and high-minded commentary have made me realize I should never have shared my huge life moment with friends and family. Based on your scintillating commentary and obvious credibility on the subject of classy behavior--bolstered by your use of an alias while posting in an anonymous and obscure medium--I've decided to lay aside my own impulses, discard my own judgment, and align my habits with your learned opinions.
Said no one. Ever.
This is the exact same reasoning people use for posting grades/biglaw offers/law review status on facebook. It's not any more compelling in this context. If you want to celebrate good news, be more discriminating than "your entire Facebook audience."
