FWIW, I don't read everything on this list. As a working grad student, I
don't usually have the time. But I do read a lot of it, and most of what I
read I find *extremely* valuable. Maybe that's *because* I'm a grad student
and new to the profession. Maybe it's because a lot of this is new to me.
I just know that I find myself referring to this listserve an awful lot when
talking with my fellow students, my tech writing faculty, and anyone else I
can get to listen to all the incredible and interesting things I am learning
about tech writing (and related issues) from this listserve.
In spite of all the demands on my time, I always try to find time to read as
much on this listserve as I can, precisely for that reason.
