In regards to the following:

<Dear Mr. Andraksen/ Ms. Kinion/ Mr. Kent et al,

I don't know any of you. I deeply resent being drawn into your personal
battles. One of the reasons that I joined this listserv was to participate
in professional discussions. What I have found instead is that there is a
great deal of discussion that should be -IMHO-off-line. Yours is just the
latest example.

If the nature of the list doesn't change quickly, I will be signing off.

This is nothing against Ms. Tholen or anyone else, but her post and the
posts of the other gladiators got me thinking.

I kind of like being sucked into the personal battles of others. Maybe I am
powerless to help them, but at least I feel that I am dealing with real
human beings when I read their emotional outbursts (and I find that oddly

All the hub-bub over Mr. Kent's book has made me very curious. I have been
in this profession for over 20 years and I have never met anyone who makes
$200K a year tech-writing. It blows my mind to think that that is possible.
If Mr. Kent's book discusses ideas and/or methods for doing such, even if
the methods are only theoretical, perhaps the rest of us should be
discussing it here. I don't know about the rest of you, but I am in this
business to make as many bucks as I can as pleasantly as I can and as
quickly as I can.

Good-naturedly Yours,
Cliff Bachison
