After all, the first HPs weren't made by other HPs. Shouldn't it be more about the individuals knowledge, experience, skill and connection with the deities?
(I've been reading some stuff onAbout.com and came across a question about forming a coven when you weren't initiated into an existing coven before.)

MK and I usually post this to be sarcastic, but there's a grain of truth to it. In Wicca in general is a lot of misinformation. I tend to write it off, except when it's intentionally misrepresenting part of my own faith. In the bigger picture, there are a lot of bits of history that have been twisted or completely rewritten to suit someone's purpose along the way.
In one respect, I see the point of insisting on a HP before one can become a HP, since it's a position of counselor/educator on behalf of a larger group. It puts in a type of framework where the Baptist church can denounce someone like Fred Phelps, claiming to be a Baptist. On the other hand, if the HP in question is already acting from a state of severe misinformation, cutting off the ability to add to the chaos isn't terrible.
