I have a thought on all of this...

"Get over it."

And when that sinks in...

"Get over yourself."

Many of you may not like Plato, but he's right. If you use your tools
knowledge to go to bat for you, you WILL meet a pitcher who strikes you out.
It's not about your command of language, your skill with a word processor,
or your ability to create PDFs and Help files in a single bound. It's all
about creating good, solid, factual content to help other people succeed.

Gene made an excellent point about the poster's manager. That person should
feel quite lucky to have someone like that sticking up for him/her (I can't
remember who posted originally, sorry).

I thought I had a profound point, but I guess I don't.
