In an effort to combat one of the most common criticisms of Wiki-based resources (that "the encyclopedia anyone can edit" can in fact be edited by anyone - namely those who have absolutely no knowledge of the subject)[1], I have compiled a brief "résumé" of "credentials."

I have taken eleven Advanced Placement exams offered by the College Board. Exams are scored on a 1 to 5 scale, with a score of 3 being a passing grade. Grades of 5 are considered "extremely well qualified," 4 considered "well qualified," and 3 considered "qualified."[2]

Please note that as a logical extension of these listed credentials, I am not to be trusted regarding any perceived knowledge I may think I have on subjects including (but not limited to) biology, chemistry, computer science, physics, psychology, or any field of knowledge considered to be in any way related to any type of hard science.
