Putting the "Fist of Death" on my Xmas List.

Laura/all,

I was around in those days and saw the original debate--and Scott Adams response--unfold before my eyes. It was awesome!

I think our profession is as deserving of satire as any. There are definitely some Tinas in our world. Sure, sometimes I wish Adams were more sympathetic to the tech writer's frequent plight, ala the old joke about how the tech writer breaking her/his back trying to document an elephant according to specifications only to find out at the last minute that the company had changed the spec to rhinoceros six months before.

But it was the very grumbling from this list that helped create Tina's ongoing character! That's hilarious. If you don't like it, send Adams your best funny stories about elephants/rhinos, pointy-haired bosses, and dealing with engineers like Dilbert, Wally, or Alice (and her Fist of Death, which I envy). He'd probably like the inspiration....
