I always am...

AFAIK , IMHO stays for "in my humble opinion" ;-)

I just told you and I based my statement on what I see often enough when
dealing with candidates that take exams... You did not get the message:
if someone takes the exams the way the majority does, the ACTIVE
certification period is longer than the 5 years, because it starts again
with each exam you pass.

I can't recall a statement where I demanded that all candidates must run
trough all levels.

Anyway, let us stop this never ending discussion. Although you prefered
not to answer me why anything will be worse in Germany, I believe you
made your point of view clear to me and, I hope, so did I mine.



PS. By removing and rearranging a lot of text when quoting me, you
altered too much, so that it looks like my advice "express *your*
opinion" was right after your IMHO. It was not. It is not polite to
quote me in a way that changes the meaning of my words...
