Well yes, exactly. "Stupidity" turns out to be very context-dependent, especially when the context is as rarified as this one.
Personally I find it remarkable and interesting how the "stupidity" seems to be regarded as such a contemptible vice, at least in Western culture. (Or maybe it's more universal: calling someone stupid is one of the worst things you can say to them in Japan, too.) Particularly as our endeavors get more and more arcane, and we all grow more and more stupid as a consequence. (I dread the day, coming soon I fear, when it will be regarded as "stupid" not to have internalized the XSD data-typing specifications.)
Better simply to acknowledge that it's good practice to be thorough ... it feels much more stupid to find the stupid error after days of looking for a smart one, when one might have found it immediately. I always try to assume first I'm making the stupid mistake: it keeps me looking smart, because I find the inevitable stupidities more quickly with less fuss. Sometimes I'm the only one who knows how dumb I am.
