My cent and a half:

I am opposed to discouraging anyone from learning any amount of Greek
whatsoever, however little. If all someone can do is look up words in a
lexicon he is far more likely to get a definition right than someone who
cannot. Yes sometimes folks make assertions beyond their level of expertise,
but more ignorance is hardly going to help that--more learning might. In the
meantime, those of us who periodically darken counsel without knowledge will
give those who are truly knowledgeable something to do.
