I ALWAYS preface a draft doc (expecially the first one, even the second
iteration if appropriate) with a reminder in the form of a note or a verbal
statement to the effect, "please disregard all grammar, spelling, etc. as these
areas will be taken care by final draft; please add, delete, or modify the
content for technical accuracy, only." Either I have been lucky, or a note of
this kind helps.

The only ones that end up correcting the spelling, etc., are those that I know
have nothing technical to contribute, but want to have input to the doc!

I think this is a great list to help solve our problems as well as to enhance
our knowledge of the job.
