I just read a post on Coding Horror that Noah referred to in his recent entry, You're not a programmer if you can't write a program. While that's an appalling problem, there is something far worse than getting someone who can't write simple code: the bogus expert.

The bogus expert is generally an expert in trivia. They know syntax, but have no idea how to use it appropriately. They're always closed-minded individuals who will refuse any idea unless it's their own or they can make it appear to be their own. The most important thing to a bogus expert is their illusion of superiority. They don't care about consequences and so you can normally identify one after the fact by the mess they leave.

All the following stories are true examples from my own personal experience, names have been omited to protect the companies victimized by these types.
