Al responded: <<I disagree. There was a thread several months ago about
starting a tech writing blog, and a number of members use blogs both to
promote tech writing and to promote their company's technical documentation
products. By understanding how to keep those blogs free of pop-ups and
hijacking, you would be helping them in their work.>>

I agree with Al. Blogs and wikis are becoming increasingly important to the
tech writing field. Why shouldn't we be able to discuss that subject here?
We can all benefit from Dick's findings about pop-ups.
