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

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.
