When working as a professional in your field, you are usually faced with input from colleagues that have different and often over-bearing opinions. Sometimes they beat down your expertise to where there is no choice but to let them have it their way. It is a modern day "Pearls before Swine" when you give in, but it beats getting high blood pressure. Let it go.

Some people are hell-bent on putting their "taint" on your project even though they don't have your skills.
