Perhaps I was unclear in my original posting. Of course your clients
never ask you to send them writers who suck. I was trying to make a point
(that you somehow missed), which is that if you decide not to send
writers to clients solely based on whether they seem abrasive or flaming
to you on a mailing list, you're shortchanging your clients.

The part you avoided quoting from my original post is that you're
probably keeping very talented people from your clients by omitting the
ones who post messages that you personally find distasteful. Posts to
this list, I'm sure we can all agree, in no way indicate their *talents*
as technical writers.

I'm a little surprised I had to spell that out for you, but since you
missed it (or chose to miss it?) the first time, I'm happy to help.
