Perhaps you two are using different meanings for 'amateur': one being 
'unpaid', the other 'low-quality'. Of course, in the old days, 
amateur meant 'noble', 'high-quality', because an amateur was 
something who did not need to do something for a living. The word 
'amateur' had a similar meaning that 'hacker' does among hackers.
