Ahh good. it was sarcasm. Heh. I can now appreciate your message. ;)
You know, I don't know why people don't get it, but how hard is it to
understand that having intelligence and knowledge about what you're
working with is a good idea?
Let's use journalism as an example. How would the journalist feel to see
someone with no formal education on journalism, no idea how to use a
word processor, someone who uses crayons to write articles... Hell, how
about someone who can't spell... Or maybe who can't even write. Let's
give them a job as a journalist.
Hell, who needs to know how to do the job their assigned?
Good god. I just don't get it.
