25 certifications. 24 (including mine) at Apprentice, 1 at Journeyer. Certification: Journeyer. That’s mainly what is disturbing me about my new fake-cert.
I wonder what malcolm thinks is the cause of the difference in opinion about my contributions to free software.
I wonder also what he heard while I was working in February. I wasn’t working on free software, I was just using it, after all.
I should have the option of not being able to be certified higher than I’ve certified myself (which I did when I found my new imposter-cert). I realise then some ultra-modest hackers might end up being certified very low… but how many are there…
