Mac, I think you've hit the nail on the head.

Kenneth just thinks he's paying for a "coder". Therefore if he doesn't
appreciate what's involved in the job how would he know how to select
the right firm?

nice rant.  Now then - is it our fault that you picked a shop that
do what you want?  How did you select them, evaluate them?

we're entitled to (and get) our approx $100 per hour because we have
of business experience, because we can tell clients when their ideas
work - and suggest new ideas that will, because we turn out good quality
code on time and on budget.

and we're no different to hundreds - probably thousands - of development
companies;  if you engaged the wrong one(s), then your selection process
