Re: Everyone gets an 'A'
Somethings are simply stupid and a waste of time. We can say that and be respectful as long as we qualify and say why it is stupid.
As Jon and a few others have said...it is awesome when you find a person that can operate intelligently across many styles and arts. I seek those folks and avoid the one dimensional parochial ones that simply cannot Explain what they do and how it is applicable or the limitations of it. Those are called masters.
Those that have a chip on their shoulder and are constantly threatened about what others say are both stupid and get a F.
