Whether we should be listed as TWs or TCs is a matter of opinion, and as
everyone's mileage varies, it cannot be equally applied to all. I do
almost no *writing* in this job, yet a I do a ton of communicating and
...of technical information. "Writer" is simply inaccurate for me, but I'm
definitely above "admin" and in a whole other category from any of the
others the DOL used to lump us into. I'll stick with Communicator, thank
you.

Actually, it lists us (correctly) as technical writers -- not
"communicators."
