In my recent performance review, my manager said there have been complaints
about my editing comments being too harsh. Part of my job requires proof
reading engineers' writing (I am the only tech writer in the company). I
thought that I was being sensitive. Has anyone encountered this problem?
What do you do to *not* tread too heavily on engineer egos?
