Subject:What does Eric say? From:Sue Heim <SUE -at- RIS -dot- RISINC -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 23 Feb 1995 16:49:39 PST
For what it's worth, and to be honest, I'm really tired of reading
why collectively we should, or should not, post ads and other
information not specifically related to the actual job of technical
writing. Although this is purportedly an unmoderated list (even
though I suspect there are quite a few out there who would love to
assume that position) has anyone thought to ask Eric directly as to
what his views are? Since he *is* the list owner...
I think we should stop, smell the roses, and check out what Eric
Eric? The ball's in your court!

My personal feelings on the subject, should anyone care to read
further, are: If the information that is posted has to do with
technical writing in *any* form (be it a book worth reading, a class
worth taking, a suggestion or tip on how to do something), I am
interested in it. I do not have access to the Web whenever the urge
strikes nor do I have time to surf the variious Web sites to find
information of interest.
BTW, I really wasn't going to post anything, but this has really
gotten out of hand! ...sue
