I thought Ben's crusty mood showed a great deal of restraint. My own feelings
are that a person in a MA program wanting to write on technical writing and the
community of technical writers ought to go out and walk among that community.
Maybe start with getting a technical writing job, producing a few manuals,
writing a help file or two, negotiating with supervisors and programmers or
engineers before s/he tries to broadcast general questions of minor
consequence. The last place to look for truth is the internet.

As I say, those are my own feelings. Unlike Ben, crustiness is not a mood with
me; it is an enduring condition.
