Re: Sloppy writing, sloppy thinking
Why do some here (NOT Bruce, I say one last time!)
keep trying to convince us that good tech-writing craft can exist without *both* technical accuracy and clarity of expression? Is it because it is easier to pretend that good, honest craftsmanship is not nearly as important as guruhood? Sometimes you gotta wonder.
Well said, Michael; but you're wasting your breath. All Philistines suffer from the delusion that nothing they don't understand can posssibly be important to anyone else.
