Huh? Who said you had to "be" a judge to subscribe to this list? I am
certainly not a qualified judge, and I am quite intimidated by the study
guide, but I "am" a homebrewer and a subsciber to the list. I find the
discussions to be thought provoking nonetheless, and while I don't have
much to add, I get a lot of useful info out of it.

One thing is certain though, if you have an attitude against discussions of
"structure", "organization", "standards", and the thought of someone else
telling you your beer isn't perfect, then you wouldn't want to subscribe to
a list like this anyway. {You should try attending an ANSI or IEEE
standards body meeting sometime}.

You may also want to stay away from competitions also, unless you enjoy
paying other people to drink your beer, keep your bottles, and then deflate
your ego a little {as the baby in Dinasours sais... "Again!"}.

Lighten up a little.
