I'm with Kevin, I believe everyone CAN code.

Wrestling a similar situation with a stronghold of Luddites at a Club I'm a
member of. It has a website and a Wiki and members are continually
complaining that this is wrong or that is missing or something needs
updating. Well go ahead and fix it, it's a Wiki, you can do it. And then
all the excuses come out; the original author hasn't given me permission, I
don't want to tread on any ones toe's, I'm not an expert in the field -
someone with more knowledge should do it, there should be an approval
process, the Committee should oversee amendments, the Wiki will turn into a
pile of spaghetti, it will be anarchy, all will be lost, the world will
end...

Yet the Wiki has been there for over 5 years and no spaghetti, no anarchy,
no lost information. Just the few who always volunteer working against the
avalanche of complainers.
