Ok, here I go, I know I'm going to get it good, but I will say it anyways.
:roll:
I don't like people writing there Curriculum Vitae's Certifications on there posting. I don't. It's silly, maybe?? But I don't like it. I know I will get it because it seems like everyone does it. It feels like big di..k waving competition to me. So here!!! I said it!!! Just an opinion.

While it can get out of hand at times (we have had a few people who's sig was longer than most posts), I think for the most part it is just people being proud of their accomplishments and I see nothing wrong with that. I don't think they are waving anything in front of you or holding it over you. They studied hard, paid their money, and pasts their certs and they just want people to be aware of that.
Also, I am sure there are a few people who ask questions and find it nice to see certified people answering their questions. Not to mention the amount of job recruiters that probably crawl this site and look for that sort of thing.
I know I'm going to get it good
That wasn't too bad was it?

Perhaps they are compensating for something?
I think if you work really hard for something and you finally get it, it feels good to wear the badge for a while. Later, it doesn't seem like such a big deal, so you put the badge in a drawer.
