I used the term *dumb down* in reference to *myself*. The average
developer is a dummy in all but a few fields, just like me. We cannot
restrict all fields until they are simple enough for everyone to
understand. As someone pointed out recently, we wouldn't have a
technologically advancing civilization if we did that. If we cannot agree
on that much then further discussion is not going to be productive.
