About the only thing it means, by current thinking is that people tend to think that they are above average, and possibly that, in their eyes, incompetent people don't know enough to know how incompetent they are. Neither part seems useful in the current circumstances. What about 'competence bias' [Edit, as a less confrontational term].

I don't think it means that.

 "Competence bias" is a term that is too ambiguous. Additionally, the pejorative nature of the "D-K syndrome" term is useful in that it encourages critical examination of whether a person is sufficiently knowledgeable to express an opinion/statement.

No, I don't think all opinions are equally valid. (Does any engineer?)[1]
Yes, I do apply that to myself :)

[1] e.g. too many teachers confidently state that, using the normal laws of arithmetic, 1+2*3=9.

Maybe you're not applying it to yourself quite enough  - Yes, I'm finding you a bit OTT these days too. Possibly a time for quiet reflection.

You chose to bring the subject up. That ensured it didn't die.

That's something I have still not see coming from you. I'm sure you are able to simply state your goals, letting aside any aggresivity, probably originated from any perceived attack to the quality of your product. I for one would greatly appreciate that. Otherwise I'll stick with the people that isn't selling anything. just saying.

Where I'm not reasonably sure of something, I'll either not comment or I'll add caveats. When I realise I've made a mistake, I don't try to revise history, and I do try to apologise. IMHO constructive conversations cannot occur without that.

I'm very tolerant of beginners asking information, provided they listen to the answers, and think. Watching someone's capabilities improve is a profound pleasure.

We all make mistakes; that's part of learning. However, as I taught my daughter, "let's make new mistakes".

I'm less tolerant of people who don't listen[3], or don't learn, or choose not to improve, or do who misrepresent other people's position[1], or who continue to misrepresent their product[2] (typically to ignorant managers).

I've spent a lifetime being plagued by salesman/companies who make impossible claims for their products. I know others feel the same!

[1] often in the form of chosing to omitting relevant context, or with strawman arguments

[2] e.g. if their product does what they claim, then they've solved the Byzantine General's problem or the split brain problem, or broken the laws of thermodynamics etc.

[3] possibly due to the Dunning-Krueger syndrome
