It is clearly getting offtopic, but only completely horrible programmers
code without regard to quality of final product, its stability, usability etc.

Maybe bottom-quality code writers (I would not call them programmers)
are without IT expertise, but it is not applicable to programmers
in general.

Maybe, but claiming that there is no benefit at all is not describing 
situation well.

It is demonstrably false (as long as you are not redefining
"people with IT experience" to "people who agree with me").
