Perhaps we should nitpick with respect?! :-)

It is valid to split hairs if you are trying to define the difference
between third person and passive voice. But I think it is a bit over the
top to criticize someone for a comma splice in a message not pertaining to
comma splices. Again, it's ok to split hairs if you are defining what a
comma splice is.

My feeling is that, being inexperienced, Chad has a thinner skin than the
rest of us. We should have remembered that. But technical writing isn't
a good career for people with thin skin. Everyone in this field must learn
not to take criticism personally.

p.s. No one wants to bite on how we group information? Is it too stupid of
a question? Too hard? Or just uninteresting?
