Well, at one place I was referred to as a 'typist' by the head of EDI.
His view of Technical Authors was that all we did was 'type'.

Interestingly, this was also a site where a Project Leader reviewed one
of my drafts and came back with the comment that it was all very good,
but could I reduce the page count by 50%. Good grief!
