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.
The worst example I ever saw was "This page left intentionally blank to
avoid inconvenient page breaks later in the manual."
When I first saw the page, I was struck dumb. It was then explained to
me that one of the company's more "original" writers had decided to
justify blank pages in this manner.

Your manuscript is both good and original, but the part that is good is
not original and the part that is original is not good.
