On the other hand, those that claim to be a computer expert because they can run a mail merge from Word, or copy an Excel macro from a website, or talk l33t, these people might abase intellectual effort because they make none. Posers, in a word.

Football: a violent contact sport, frequently resulting in personal injury. Chess: A game in which you are encouraged to send blindly loyal soldiers of varying specialties to their untimely deaths all in the name of protecting a single political figure.
