I don't know Susan. If somebody did that to me I'd mutter "what a dick!" (in my
best Jeff Spicoli voice) as they walked away.

Although you're right about one thing, attitude does matter.

I find that a "I've got that all under control, thanks for the input" attitude
works much better than the "you're stupid, I am a genius" attitude.

Some people just love to stick their fingers into everything. Programmers who
want to define docs - eh - take their ideas, integrate a few and tell them
thanks for the input. You wouldn't like it if they ignored all your grammar or
UI edits, so don't do the same to them.
