Certifications are for squares

Personally, when I judge the skills of someone, I look at their experience, not their pieces of paper. You can learn all you want and not know how to use it...

well it's a bit of both... i can see from your sig you're a bit OTT on the certs front... i often find that people who live for certs often get left lacking a lot in the real life implementation of their ability to tick most of the right boxes on an exam paper. just like my degree counts for absolute squat compared to just (relatively few) years of experience, my rhce and ccna certs also don't have leg to standa on compared to what i'm capable of...
