If I am communicating within the company - so he believes - and I
have been hired by the company to handle documentation issues, then
my opinions actually -ARE- to be construed as representing my
employer, and should be protected as such.

I dunno. Company Policy is usually arrived at via give and take among many
political factions in the office, and as such is rarely the work of a
single person (except in a small company). My opinion on which is the best
tool to use for a particular job is not always the same as my employer's.
When I state my opinion of the best tool for the job, then I am obviously
*not* stating my employer's opinion, even though I may be doing the job in

That's why I include the disclaimer.

Have fun,
Chief Managing Director In Charge, Department of Redundancy Department
DNRC 224

In God we trust; all others must provide data.
Opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.
If JCI had an opinion on this, they'd hire someone else to deliver it.
