Eric clearly stated this as an opinion, of course, but I thought we were
going to stay away from the "anyone who uses <fill in name of tool
currently being bashed> is to be pitied" type of message. I've been using
Word for years and will continue to use it, and I'm reasonably certain
that (at times, anyway) I'm a "serious" technical writer.
