Well there if the OP didn't think that us HFers were______( I can't use the OPers word as it has been moderated out) but lets say that the reference made would be equal to the intelligence level of an earthworm...maybe the posts that followed would have been less snarky.
Up to that point the main question was why was it needed...which BTW you also asked.
And the OPers answer to your and the other member's question is they have been riding with it for years and years and years and know everything they are doing.
Even the top trainers in the world would never claim that title.
