It means, IMHO, that they don't yet "get it." Since the purpose of the 
Incubator is to ensure that folks do indeed "get it", it would be 
unfortunate to disqualify for entrance anyone who has demonstrated that 
they don't in fact already get it.

So, no, I'd say that this does not disqualify them for entrance. It does 
  mean, however, that someone must approach them and instruct them on 
the ways in which their actions demonstrate a lack of getting it. It 
seems that this process is already underway, via Ted.
