My response to the subject line is Definitively No. But this tends to
devolve into the old argument, and I've already camped on the
No-you-don't-need-to-be-an-engineer-to-be-a-techwriter side, with no
desire to resume lobbing thought bombs toward any folks who happen to be
on the Yes side.

With all due respect, Leonard, your comments were valid, but I suspect
this is one more issue that generates more heat than light, and probably
already takes up too much space in the archives.
