Randy, I'm curious; what is your litmus test for distinguishing  
between amateur and expert in a given field?
And what field is it exactly that one would need expertise in, for  
this particular situation, in order to merit something other than  
summary dismissal from you?

Whose guesses -- and whose blunt assertions and summary dismissals --  
get to count more (or maybe at all) in this case, and why?
