Obviously, you take great pride in your work and take the time to make sure
it is accurate. That's great. But, please, don't assume that those of us who
document software don't strive for quality as well. ALL technical writers
have to get it right. Software, heavy machinery, tugboats, whatever...
technical writing must be accurate. Most, if not all, of the people on this
list work within their company's deadlines. I do. That doesn't mean I
neglect accuracy. It means I make sure my stuff is right and done within the
time I have.
