I do not really feel it's someone on the list demonstrating their skill.
 That's a blanket indictment that I'm sure will offend someone.

I for one, am one of those people who understand that it's impossible to
completely rid myself of it while I'm on the list, so I do the best I
can to keep it under control. The benefits of these lists certainly
outweigh some spineless git out there wanting to sell me crappy stock or
a larger penis.
