TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I am under the assumption that this is a list for technical writers to
learn through their peers. I have been reading and participating
occasionally for several months. Every time I try to be helpful or say
something, other people on the list say oooh! here is a opportunity to slam
someone. Who cares that there in my profession or that they are trying to
learn, or that they might not be as experienced as I am. I'll slam them
I feel this is the reason many people are afraid to give there comments.
Are there any other people who feel the same way I do. Just curious?
