I'd say professionals talk strategy, tactics, and logistics prioritizing their conversation according to circumstance(with perhaps a decided emphasis on logistics). Educated amateurs talk strategy, tactics, and logistics with less quality but sometimes have something worthwhile to say and shouldn't always be underestimated. Just plain amateurs talk propaganda and should be tolerated indulgently as long as they are not doing any real harm.
