Don't ask me why, but I want to go on record as thinking that while
there is
such a thing as technical communication, calling someone a technical
communicator shows a lack of ability to communicate and is just
downright
silly. It says nothing at all meaningful to one who reads it or hears
it. It
demands fleshing out, so it's basically -- or should be -- antithetical
to
anyone who's involved in using language with precision.

I will never be a technical communicator (I hope).
