With all due respect, I think this is very sad.

A company hired us to make user guides for their projects.

Most of the people, don't care about the user manuals or the accuracy
of their contents unless someone complains.

OK, one person brought this up, but many others on the list identified
with the problem.
Why do we have to fight these battles all the time?


Some similar technique might apply for our tech-writing reviewing

problems. Does anyone have an idea how we might work this--without

going broke in the process from people who circulate "additional"

review copies and tell people, "Read page 19." ??
