Techwr-l serves many purposes for many people. Some use it as a forum
for learning, others for teaching. Still others see it as a venue in
which they can assert their opinions/demonstrate their superiority/
vent their frustrations. Unfortunately, the purposes of some users
do not always serve the needs of others.

I've been a techwr-l list member almost since its inception; and
believe me, I've had to don asbestos undies a time or two myself.
The lessons to be learned, above all, are that technical writing,
for all its external structure and dryness is a profession of
passionate individuals and that we all must develop a thick skin
to survive with our passions in tact.
