No, I think kneelift is someone who thought they could undercut everyone's opinions by questioning people's occupations, which is an attitude I find highly distasteful.

- Someone might not be a chef (or even know how to cook) but they would still know when they get served a plate of poorly cooked food...

- Someone might not be able to drive, but they would still know when the car they are in is being driven unsafely...

- Someone might not be a professional photographer, but they would still know when they are looking at a badly composed photo...

For someone to imply that because someone does not work in a very specific field, that they have no right to an opinion on a subject (other than praising whatever is dished up) is highly distasteful, IMHO
