Hmmm. Are your standards too high for technical writing
contractors who can't edit a resume and don't *appear* to
have a grasp of convention? Nope. I'd say you're right on
the mark.

What the heck. You have no obligation to provide this feedback,
but you may just help this group see the need for closer scrutiny
of their work. If you can promote professional standards by educating
someone who needs the information, by all means, do so. With luck,
the contractor will see the benefit of your response.
