Regarding indology

Isn't it understood that being an indologist implies
years and years of professional training (including
linguistic). Indology is no less a profession that
engineering. Reading tons of medical books does not
make a doctor, so how can anyone without a proper
education refer to himself as an indologist?
For indologist, being an Indian or living in India
could be considered as an additional qualification :)
It is really sad to observe that a list meant for
indological discussions is becoming a battlefield for
some irrelevant issues.
Perhaps, the list itself needs a more strict
moderator. From another said, IMHO if we avoid
answering to extraneous and provocative messages and
concentrate on issues of our profession, it would
discourage "indologists" from posting.
