      Perhaps the phrase "position paper" set me off -

      That, to me, sounds like I am going to have to defend my interest in learning more about Scrum, I guess, to prove I am worthy of even being allow "on the path", so to speak.  I have no argument with setting a more stringent standard to be called "ScrumMaster" - I simply think there should always be a path for anyone who wants to learn, regardless of how totally clueless they may start out--

      I don't see how punishment got into the equation here. Why call them
      "Certified ScrumMaster" if they can't answer a reasonable number of
      questions about what it is to be one?

      We accomplish what we understand. If we are to accomplish something
      together, we need to understand it together.
