I agree. There is a vast difference between "coders", "programmers" and "analyst programmers".

Coders write code to fulfill the complete specification that are given. Sometimes they given the basic code to enter.

Programmers have the ability to flesh out less well defined specification by getting answers to the undefined parts of the specification.

Analyst programmers read and question the specification they have been to ensure that the specification meet, and will resolve, the problem for which the specification was written.

In addition, consideration has be given to the working environment and management of the project. I have worked in organisations in which management not only dictated the specifications for the features or issues, they also dictated the time estimates to complete the feature or resolve the issue. This environment makes it very difficult to raise questions or even make changes to obvious issues.
