I find it ... amusing that I'm the one
being accused of "trolling" when this list
has been lately inundated everything from
racist rubbish to attempts at making tenuous
connections between cultish political
philosophy figures to technical writing.

I decided to nip this one in the bud before,
say, an adherent of L. Ron Hubbard starts
arguing that he in fact invented Techwritingology,
while opponents argue that at a dinner with
Heinlein back in the 50s, L. Ron actually
said said "Starting a religion for $10,000
a word is ridiculous. If a man really wants
to make a million dollars, the best way would
be to start his own tech writing consultancy."

Then again, if Rand did actually write
a tutorial for Word macros, I'm quite
willing to read it.
