Here, here. You just sort of summed up my opinion of this thread. It became obvious early on, that Mr. Markos didn't want to hear what we were saying as much as have us agree with him. I believe he would have had a much more meaningful conversation and probably would have gotten a lot more valuable information had he been a lot less antagonistic with his responses. Anyway, I'm done with this thread. I have more important things to do, like watching Iron Chef.

Okay, Tony, you win. There is no such thing as structured writing. There is no such thing as technical writing. There is no such thing as writing at all. The world as you know it is a figment of your imagination and none of us are real. But if you count slowly backward from ten your long nightmare will end.
