Ye Gods, if someone actually thinks "writer's" indicates the plural, they
need to take a few basic English grammar courses.

It's one thing for an engineer or programmer to make this kind of
grammatical error in their docs, but for a tech pubs person to do it is
pretty much inexcusable (IMHO).

I truly hope this person's department has a good editor who can correct
such mistakes before their docs go out the door.
