I let the conversation on the LinkedIn hack go forward in the interests of
protecting the list since we would all be at risk from a hacked account
(and have had some members who have been hacked in the recent past). We
have now veered completely off topic and it's time to get back to tech

One of the List rules states "If it relates to *computer use* but
not technical communication, it probably isn't appropriate. Don't post it."

Your first clue should be a subject line that starts with "OT." Those who
continue to post to OT threads risk being moderated.

Time to get back to hot spot graphics, the need for editors, DITA vs. HAT
and other tech comm topics of the day.
