Then you’ve not been reading your clique buddy Audrey’s posts very carefully.
There’s also her weird bigoted stereotype of people who happen to work in IT to consider.

That’s Walter Mitty, John. The original character was a dreamer, not a pretender.
A Walt makes false claims about military service, not degrees.

What is this word you keep using?

There is no obligation on this board to declare qualifications and most have chosen not to. It’s notably unfair to those members without degrees to give the impression that qualifications are a requirement and something they are going to be challenged on, when this is really irrelevant and inappropriate to the character of the board. On GHMB it should be taken as read that most or all members are not formally qualified in the topics under discussion. Who messed up this status quo ante? Your pal Femano, followed by you.
