Ahem. I've always followed the philosophy that I can learn from
*everybody*. Sometimes it's what not to do, sometimes what to do.
Sometimes the knowledge is not even related to the apparent
"expertise" (e.g. a floor sweeper may have a valuable life lesson
unrelated to pushing a broom). So, pay attention to everyone, evaluate
and proceed appropriately is my MO.

I'm guessing that since KB has been so terse recently, JP feels
temporarily relieved of the burden of being the CentOS "grinch", or
curmudgeon if you prefer. ;-)

After all, someone has to fill that role. Otherwise the ignorant
unwashed masses might run amok on this list! :-)
