You bet. That mail kind of said, "to those who are currently working 9 to
5 and have no stress must either be bored or lazy."

And what about that last sentence:

>>" But if you want to create technical documentation you can be proud of,

What? If I work 9 to 5 and have no stress, I can't do anything good? Is
that it? Geez, I didn't know that it were politically uncorrect to enjoy
having a life besides the job. Hey, I must confess, I like going home to
my familly after 8 hours of work.
