Was it really fictitious? Wow, I hope so - I've always thought it was a
pretty tragic situation.

However, I didn't get the sense when I was reading it that it was
fictitious. And I believe I saw it in a school newsletter - perhaps
someone had "lifted" it from the STC journal and left out the
"fictitious" introduction (?)

Well, even if it was fictitious, it still makes me a little wary of
putting my name in a manual. If someone wants to try to sue me because
of a product manual I was involved with, I want them to jump through
hoops to find out who I am.

IIRC, this was a fictitious situation (and a fictitious company) used
for an ethics discussion in the STC journal.
