Do you truly think that you should start working on something only
when you master the subject already?

Do you truly think it is best when leading a team to say to someone
willing to work "get of our way, you didn't knew this file exists"
instead of saying "please read the documentation there and start
working on this thing"? Is the knowledge of the pseudo-tags something
that cannot be learned but must be given at birth by magical process? 

Funny :)
