@JohnAskew: It's just for programmers. An account with a decent score on SO is recommended.

I've only known one person in real life who had any kind of significant score on stack overflow. He was a worthless developer because he spent all day f*cking around on SO.

We were quite happy to get rid of him when possible and spent a good deal of time fixing the atrociousness that he called code.

Those who can, do...those who can't spend all day on stackexchange.
