I didn't really see it as personal 'testimonials' but more based on those who are Degreed 'experts' in the field via cited data from numerous authors and books as well as publications, which is how I interpreted it.
I also posted it in a very unbiased matter, again I have made no stance, or negative connotations to either what I have posted or the people who believe otherwise. I thought this was pretty clear. I even said to form your opinions.
However, unfortunately I think this thread is being driven into something I really don't care much for or intended.
