Rob, I apologize if I have offended you or anyone else reading the postings.
You are right.  It is a prejudice that I need to dispense with.  I'm sure
that it purely concidence that I have had the experiences that I mentioned.
However, old prejudices die hard...

I am so full of it, well, you know it was just an opinion...but then again
you know what they say about opinions and a**holes.

If I had already taken and passed some of the tests, I would probably have a
different opinion, as you say.

But one thing's for sure:

When I do become certified, I probably won't be signing my corresponce and
emails with Steve Landess, CDP or Steve Landess, CCP.
That's just not me.  I WILL have the certifications listed on my resume, and
I will mention it when I am interviewing, If I believe that it is relevant.
By the way, I notice that you don't indicate your certification(s) after
your postings...
