Hey...everybody should have a hobby.

But (not so) seriously, I think we SHOULD be known as a group that cares
about the finer points of language. (Let the world be afraid to speak in
our presence!) And those who consider that care to be bogging-down, well
I guess it's better than seeing us as sloppy -- which is easy for most
people to believe when you consider what passes for "technical writing"
in the areas that most of the population is exposed to: Instructions for
the care and feeding of household products and appliances.

It's also one of those discussions that should be carefully limited to
people in the profession and not carried out in the presence of
outsiders, in order to avoid adding to the already common general
perception that the technical writers get bogged down in trivialities
that nobody else cares about.
