Just knowledge alone, no experience necessary? I wonder how the landscape will change after Oracle starts certifying people as experts. I can see it now: "Don't worry, I'm an Oracle certified expert":we believe in experts comments which comes based on their extensive knolwedge.

Yes, but for me, it's the "collective wisdom" (CW) that matters more than any single observation. If one experienced person says something, that's good, but if I see 20 experienced people saying something, I give it more credibility . . .experts would suggest based on their experience, practical knowledge and their testing result, not just simply referring from the metalink notes.

Agreed, but what about folks who falsely attack the credibility of others?credibility is very important thing
FYI, way-back before Oracle introduced the Oracle Certified Master program (OCM), Oracle issued Certified Oracle Master (COM) certificates . . .Certified Oracle Master
