There are many people out there who do not earn their living as writers or
editors but who can write circles around those that think they are better
than others. There are brilliant teachers who can explain things simply and
clearly to ten-year-olds. I thinking it's a wonderful thing to tap the
intelligence of everyone, personally.

There are so many examples of so-called technical communicators producing
illiterate slop that I think regarding the profession as something to be
protected against the incursions of the unwashed masses who don't write for
a living is ultimately damaging to everyone, but particularly the
availability of good information.
