How, on God's green earth, are you supposed to remember _everything_
about _every_ manual you've ever written. Give me a break! When
writing a manual, I become a semi-expert of the subject matter. Six
months later--gone. If you don't use it, you lose it. Is it really a
hiring practice to ask about the specific subject matter as opposed to
looking at the actual writing style? And if so, why? I can see this if
you write about only one thing, but what about those of us who write
about many different products? It's a little ridiculous to expect one
to remember specifics about a product one wrote about a year ago.
