We are a profession. I am not asked to type letters for the boss.
I don't believe a certification program is the way to try to demand
respect in the field. Our actions and products should be doing this.

Since I disagree with you, I guess I must learn how to honk and goose people.
(Actually, I have a few people I wouldn't mind doing that to - does
that make me a clerk?).
