Rhetorical Technique for Avoiding Responsibility

Not a bad meme, but a technique that can be used to spread stupidity.  I also use “I’m not an expert but…” statements, but I think I do it for a more honest purpose. “This seems reasonable to me as an ignorant noob, if I’m wrong please explain my mistake so I won’t repeat it”.
