I think some people, like myself, find it rather disturbing that some people
call themselves tech writers clearly have no problem solving skills. They
immediately resort to asking a forum like TECHWR-L to do their work.

And we wonder why engineers don't respect us?

Andrew Plato


And yet, every software engineer or programmer I know works and learns by
doing wholesale copies of example code into his or her code. They also base
their work on established, published algorithms and trusted formulas.
They don't waste resources "re-inventing the wheel" when there is an
opportunity for "creative plagiarism."

Just a Monday morning thought.
