TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I truly DO NOT UNDERSTAND why questions such as these dominate this
list. I do not understand how spending so much time on questions such
as these can further our quest for better ways to communicate technical
information effectively and efficiently.
Methinks over a thousand people belong to this list (where'd I get that
number, Eric?), so 'tis of little surprise that you find a large number of
responses to questions. After all, if you have something you think might
add to the conversation, you post it. Sometimes you wait to see how many
others post, sometimes you don't. The point it, there is not an underground
movement to post X number of replies to the @ question. Keep in mind that
people are trying to help. Don't ding them for it.
