Well, excuse us ...

... Fine, I'm listening...

"The idea ... is that the internet has created a networked world, so now cheap data can be found by throwing a problem out to the networked masses. ... But my fear has always been that you remove any credibility in this equation. I mean, why trust the masses in this way?! Are you nuts?"

I didn't even know people used the term masses anymore. As for "lowering the bar to the common denominator in place of letting the brightest amongst us speak up," the problem with that is "the brightest among us" are so often designated as such merely by themselves.
