The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Just because you read and understood the statute, doesn't mean that
you're "OK legally." Plenty of tech writers (and companies) retain
lawyers in order to reduce their own legal liability and risk.
I realize that you were speaking hypothetically -- because you wouldn't
*really* discriminate on the basis of an unfair prejudice -- but there
are lawyers who could dismantle most of us on the stand.
Of course, they can't *write* for beans...
