So, Its not like the old Ask Me which required some level of expertise.
On the old ASKME Q&A forum, you needed some level of expertise to be one of the experts. In fact they did some background checking when you applied and it could take upwards of a week or two and some times you were refused. I think I perfer this over the current style. I am also on All Experts and Infoway and these you need some level of expertise to get listed.
