  • While I agree the comment is accurate, I don't think the phenomena is limited to IT. It's just as easy to get wildly different opinions from practitioners in fields as varied as medicine and auto repair. And you can often get some pretty serious attitude from a doctor or mechanic if you mention that you're getting a second opinion.

    I think the nature of the response to second opinions depends on the professionalism (or ego) of the person involved. A professional can offer an opinion, back it up with sound reasoning, and respectfully and factually comment on the opinions of others. The issue with sites like WTF and Slashdot is that many IT people seem to enjoy flaunting their lack of professionalism.
