Isn't it a bit arrogant, Dan, to presume to moderate the list? (Just

I would appreciate feedback about my original question:

"if Asians are ubiquitously indirect as Peter suggests, how do you write
warnings? Passive voice? Is it OK to include direct warnings (e.g., "Do
not touch!") in manuals written for Asian audiences?"

This thread had already dropped all pretense of being relevant to tech
writing. Now it's starting to flirt with political ideologies. Could we
just drop it?
