: Regarding when you remove the author's name from a revision:

: I don't like including the author's name in the first place, although it's
: the practice in some companies. If users have a real name in a company,
: they're likely to call that person instead of talking to a (perceived)
: impersonal help desk. Not that I don't take pride in my work, but by thte
: time the calls come in, I'm on another project, and I'd have to forward
: the calls to the help desk anyway. If companies want to reward my
: authoring skills, I'd sooner they do it with money, not a by-line.

: If a document DOES include the author's name, I'd pull the credit line at
: the first major revision. At that point, it's no longer the original
: author's work, and the original author should not have to take
: responsibility (credit or blame) for the changes.
