John E. Brush <brush -at- CIVENG1 -dot- CIV -dot- PITT -dot- EDU> reports, on 8/17, that he
is a thoroughgoing "thru" user. He asks:
Am I the only Technical Writer who uses "thru" when referring to a
series of items? The people who review my manuscripts would rather
see the word "through," but I'm sticking with thru unless my fellow
writers tell me I'm wrong.
I personally don't use it, but I see it a lot. I also see a lot of "a
lot" spelled as "alot". Hell, I see everything. What's the point?
