In a previous job, we avoided "recommending" anything in our manuals.
Alternatively, we reworded our recommendations in the form of "tested"
methods and such. I was curious if anyone else is familiar with that
guideline. Come to think of it, I never really asked why we did that. I
guess I assumed it was to avoid legal ramifications.
