Again, things could get pretty quiet around here!
To be a bit more on-topic, sometimes there are no hard
facts to back up a statement. Much of the business
world is ruled by opinion spun into "law" (or "rule").
Really, it's all about spin and manipulation (even
technical writing, to a degree). Sure, we all want to
tell it like it is, but sometimes doing so can be bad
for business, for whatever reason.
