Yes, that is very true. I think it is very often the case that we learn
enough to get the job done. If we use something regularly we get pretty
good at it. Sometimes we find something interesting and learn about it.
I think you will find that even some of the seasoned people on this list
will ask a question: "I know this seems dumb, but how do you..." None of
us knows everything, so we don't mind people asking simple (or complex)
questions as long as we all stay mostly civil.
