Geneve,

Thanks for that contribution to the discussion. What I understood most of the posters to be saying was along the lines of, "_I_ process reading _this_ way, and maybe a lot of other tech writers do that also," rather than, "everyone must do it this way." I think all of us understand that there are different ways people process information. By recognizing our own preferences and learning about others, we should improve our abilities to communicate with diverse audiences. Examining our premises, as you note, is always a good thing.
