I actually have an inquiry that is related, and I'm highly curious  
what the list response is:

I've someone I know who is calling themselves a '<redacted term>  
anthropologist'.
As such, they have been invited to speak and have been presenting at  
various conferences.
They do not have a PhD and they're under the age of 25, having just  
graduated from college.

Is this ethical? Can a term 'psychologist' or anthropologist' be used  
by someone not having attended graduate education?
What say this list?
