Yes ... I remember making a similar mistake one time between "pubic" and "public" ... and I never heard the end of it.~

I never gave much thought to the value of amateurism. It always seems to be used in a derogatory sense and yet I always knew that there's a distinct upside to it as well. I've really gotten to hate the term "professional" because it means so little in real terms. What IS a professional? Is it one who PROFESSES to know something ... but can't prove it?
An amateur can -at least- prove what he knows or does by concrete example ... without needing a lot of letters behind his name as "proof."
