Someone commented about a group of writers voting to limit communication.
As technical communicators, one of most pivotal roles is playing gatekeeper
on information: determining who knows what. When Eric chose to change the
reply option, he exercised his professional role.
Like many of you, I welcome substantive discussions on technical
communication. Misdirected personal messages, endless discussions
of minutia, nitpicking, flaming, and three people providing essentially
the same information hardly qualify as substantive discussions. They are
a waste of other subscribers' time and system resources.
Thank you, Eric, for your leadership.
