Or, to allude to another thread in this forum, such claims in the light of
the counterarguments might be regarded analogous to the claims of the Black
Knight in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" as to the injuries he would
inflict next. Incredulity regarding one's talents, capabilities, expertise
or knowledge may not always be a *positive* reaction.

I daresay some of us that participate in this forum would probably do well
to heed that advice.
William D. Blake wrote "Sometimes I suffer from delusions of adequacy." I
daresay some of us that participate in this forum would also be well-advised
to include such a characterization in our own inventory of our individual
strengths and weaknesses.
