Killed higher up

Developer macho sentiment: There is an informal mountaineering rule that you never help incompetents up a mountain to killed higher up, only down, to get out alive. Wannabe SOAP developers should be told to work through Bruce's TIJ book, TCP Illustrated, RFC2516, Hunter's Servlets, Box and Skonnard on XML and then maybe write a first web service

I believe that writing (even code) is expression so wannebe's should spend less time wanna'ing and then a little more being. But other than that I wholeheartedly endorse the sentiment that knowing what you're doing is your own responsibility. If you fail you're to blame too. People who don't care about their knowledge should never be trusted with important work.
