Thoughts on Food Network's "Foodies"

Little background about myself,

Culinary Grad, 6 years experience, mostly Private C.C. with top chefs in world, now Executive Chef at restaurant for 1 year, and business is increasing, due to raising the bar on the food and service offered at the restaurant now.

With increasing business, comes new clientele, and these new-comers are self-taught 'foodies' (how I hate that word) and act like they personally know how to get a more perfect sear on that scallop or that Medium Bistro Filet is 'not a true medium' (that thermometer read 145, so either your medium is the new standard or you don't know your meat temps).

So chefs, what is your favorite 'foodie' experience?

I think this guy sums it up well:
 I fear we are witnessing the “death of expertise”: a Google-fueled, Wikipedia-based, blog-sodden collapse of any division between professionals and laymen, students and teachers, knowers and wonderers – in other words, between those of any achievement in an area and those with none at all. By this, I do not mean the death of actual expertise, the knowledge of specific things that sets some people apart from others in various areas. There will always be doctors, lawyers, engineers, and other specialists in various fields. Rather, what I fear has died is any acknowledgement of expertise as anything that should alter our thoughts or change the way we live.
