Wow, that's pretty funny. It's actually the first good laugh I've had since Monday. My goodness why are there four reviews?! It's like you're giving them the opportunity to make more changes because you continue to give them another review cycle and let them control the process. YOU, anonymous poster, are the one that needs to create the rules that your reviewers follow, not the other way around.

My advice is get some gonads and create a style guide, and a structured time line of how the documents are going to be reviewed, edited and distributed. You should also contact Lindsey Amott about possibly using some of her great content on her web page to illuminate your boss. I really feel like you're handing your power over to your boss. Just my opinion.

Lyndsey gets digest, but I'm cc'ing her.

2) Sections that were not marked as needing revision
in round one, two, or three suddenly appear with
edits in round four. If nothing was wrong with the
section earlier and none of the text in the section
has changed, and its meaning is still valid, why does
it suddenly need revision?

3) When I make the exact edits required, I receive
edits to those. If the original edits are not correct,
why was I told to make them? I am being penalized for
following directions.
