Well, I do that as well, but the technical "support" people don't have the
qualifications to understand my qualifications.

Tech support, im experience, is useless because I "understand" the problem
and I have to communicate it to someone who does not, who will then
attempt, in his own words, to describe it to someone who may. Imagine
explaining how to change a spark plug to a 5 year old and then have that 5
year old explain it to a mechanic. Sure it makes for cute television, but
it isn't tech support.
