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.
Dear folks of the tech writing world:
It appears that the imposter came out of the woodwork (think this person
has a "life"?? doubtful)
Anyway... I'm too swamped to track the moron down. Anyone who had their
names abused... go ahead and find this person. I included all the
appropriate header info on the message. Attached you'll find the
nonsensical message I received today.

My goodness gracious, such language on TECHWR-L lately.
Guy, this message is from the originator of all
the fluff...you know, women taking over, I'm sick of
tech writing, etc.
Now, the way you used the word SHITHEAD was sort of like it
is used in high school...some shock value, macho display
behavior, but really rather harmless. Everyone gets to eat
dinner when it's all over.
