I think this is a subject where you do whatever you
are comfortable with, and accept the consequences.

I for one, have never been asked to take a writing
test. I've been asked to take a urine test, but that's
another story.

However, if I was to be asked, I would refuse. Would
I understand if i was eliminated? Sure. Would I hold
it against them? No. Would I have alternative
assignments to consider? Yep!

Why do I have this attitute?

1) I'm a contractor
2) I'm good
3) There aren't that many of us like that out there,
or at least, as many as employers would like. :-)
