(sorry Eric, I meant to post this...)

Eric wonders whether we agree with Rob's comments the shift in the nature of the postings to this list (said Rob, "But I feel that the current tone and content of this list no longer benefits me as a technical writer, and has become an unnecessary distraction.")

Recently, a former colleague told me that she had just re-subscribed to the list and found that there was a lot more theoritical debating going on than there used to be.

Her comment made me think back to when I first subscribed just a few months ago, and I have to agree. There seem to be fewer posts that are outright questions about the technical aspect of our trade, less advice and tips than there were even five or six months ago. I am finding that I skip entire threads more often then I used to, and am saving fewer posts for future reference.

I'm not sure why this is; maybe Kevin Christy is right ("Is it possible that the strain on the list is a reflection of what's happened to our industry over the last couple of years?"). Who knows.

I still appreciate this list. For me, it's like having dozens of more experienced colleagues around me from whom I can learn. That's priceless. But whatever's going on, I hope we can all gain some insight from Rob's post and help make this list even better.

My two cents,

Johanne Cadorette
