in thread What do you call yourself?

This is almost exactly the same responses I give. I also don't even mention that I'm a programmer (in any language) unless pressed because I've found that people's reactions usually shift in a bad way ("Oh, you're a programmer? Do you know MumbleFoo? It's my favorite language!" and occasionally a condescending "Oh, you're a programmer" and sometimes "Great! Can you help me with my VB app?")

    I don't say I'm a programmer because, well, I'm not a programmer.

    I solve problems and develop and/or implement things. This sometimes requires programming, but that doesn't make me a programmer.
