Is that really necessary. After enduring endless discussions, month
after month, about the merits of using one or two periods, Mr. Plato's
posts are the only ones that I read on a regular basis. I appreciate his
no nonsense approach. I too have encountered employers that, for good
reason, have a very poor opinion of technical writers in general. I have
also worked for companies that tossed the resume of anyone proclaiming
membership in STC as a matter of policy.

Dear Mr. Ray,

Does Mr. Plato have some sort of pass that permits him to be repeatedly
irritating, irrelevant and incendiary? If so, may I have one too, so
that I
might reply to him on equal footing? Or, conversely, perhaps you could
explain to him the difference between irony and idiocy. Better yet, kick
him
off the listserv.

Sincerely,
Darren Barefoot
