Heh heh heh, I am reminded of Richard Feynman's comments, and I wonder 
if he had any doctorate degrees, because he never bragged about them 
either.   :)

He said.....
In this age of specialization, men who thoroughly know one field are 
often incompetent to discuss another.

I believe that a scientist looking at nonscientific problems is just as 
dumb as the next guy.

So, I don't ask my doctor about fuel injection of my car or my mechanic 
about my gout; but Liam's opinion about html, whether I agree or not, 
means more than my neurosurgeon neighbour's opinion about html, and I 
will appreciate him telling me, again regardless whether I agree or not.

So I hope we will continue telling our opinions here and not be afraid 
it will disagree with others, or worse, awed/intimidated by fancy 
unrelated credentials (I think the term here is 'ad hominen').
