Another inflamitory statement and a red herring. If the writer is to actually do
some writing, they're going to have to base some of their facts on
engineering and development data and documentation. If those
documents/data are erroneous, then it certainly isn't the writers fault
that there's an error.

If there's a change at the last minute after the docs have been printed. Is it
the writer's fault? Of course not.

Seems just like more of Andrew's patented loathing of techwriters in general.
