What kind of professionals? Professional boxers perhaps? Who do have a 
habit to get under the skin of the opponent with a insults before the match.

Rarely people in their teens, or early twenties would be considered as 
professional on any area of expertise. So by claiming that community 
consist of professionals, aren't you already discriminating against 
individuals who do not have any professional (what ever it may be) 
interest on the project?
