Oh, then no, you've been clear that you won't work where the practices
are not up to your standards. I hear you on that. Still, I doubt you've
worked where the bar was set below the surface of the 'pool.

I guess that is more of a Special Olympics event to most tech writers. I
keep my skills sharp for that, don't want to even get wet. I've
discovered that the key is to know where the bar is BEFORE jumping in.
Also, take note if they turn the lights off before showing you around.
