I agree with your comments (but not with your presentation), and have
learned a great deal from my Exec. Assist. post last week."

Sorry about the presentation, think my fur has been rubbed the wrong way by the
re-emergence of the same old empty/circular debate of content vs. design in
documention. Been biting my tongue to make me ignore it.
The debate of where TW's 'belong' and the sad 'we don't get no respect' threads
are two dead horses I saw being reawakened as another was beginning to trot
('evil marketing - scum of the earth').
To mix a few metaphors could we be nearly missing the four horsemen of the
- content vs. design
- I don't get no respect
- marketing is evil
- where is TW in your org-chart
Would be a little more than I could take in a single day. Anybody for a tool or
OS flamewar to top it all off? ;-)

To bring this on-topic: Leason learned = don't post with dark cynical sarcasm in
mind. It just doesn't translate well to text.
What I hope others will gain = give other professions some credit. They're not
ALL cretins. Be constructive in our approach to working with others.
