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
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').
