Why are IMs such noobs and SEOs are not?

    Has anyone come across this phenomenon? It seems like whenever someone calls themselves an IM, they are horrible people and have no clue. But, an SEO is much better at analysis and understanding Google.

    I would say it's the other way around.
    IMers understand SEO and it's broad spectrum. Someone who limits themselves to the label of SEO is not really appreciating the full picture.

    I disagree with this. Most SEOs just pretend to know what they're doing, to get people to buy their "PR9" links on Twitter.

    SEO is a skill. Whenever someone says they do SEO, it means they know what works and what doesn't and how best to get your site up to the top with the least expense and duration possible.
    Anyone can do IM. I could spam 10000 backlinks to your site and still say I am an IM'er because I marketed your links to 10000 sites.
