Arlen, what's your point? I think you're picking nits with the semantics. Of
course writing requires logic and precision. But not in the same way that
programming does. Most of us who can write and program know the difference.
My intention was to not mislead writers into believing that they have the
innate ability to program. My experience with writers I have managed is that
the majority do not. And that's why they're writers, not programmers.
