OTOH, sometimes I wish I weren't a technical writer. Once I came across an
SME-authored message in an .ini file which said "Don't touch this file
unless you really know what you are doing." I wished I didn't have to
change it to something more professional, because it actually was more to
the point than anything I could come up with.
