The facts that somebody is being professional, educated and ethical does not
guarantee that he has any idea of what he is doing.  The catch is that a
clueless person is generally unware that he's clueless, so he can be quite
eithcal and professional in what he thinks he is doing. Watch the hordes
of ATM zealots - many of them with very impressive credentials.  Does not
make their "contribution" any more worthwhile.
