>>Is it now the role of the STC to determine ethics for "professional"
technical communicators? If so, I must have missed the memo.

(please be kind... normally just a listener on this list but I had to
speak up on this topic)

STC must have missed it to. Even in their competitions they have no
standard way of (or interest in) verifying anything about an entry. One
reason I'm not very fond of the STC is that they showed a total
inability to be able to handle possible ethics violations with
competition entries. I find it hard to believe instances of people
calling other people's work their own is infrequent in competition
entries, and they have no standards or set of rules to deal with it.
It's hard to swallow articles on "ethics" when they can't practice what
they preach.
