Is there no one left on TECHWR-L who remembers the last exchange about
Dilbert and Scott Adams?

As I recall, we had a long debate about one of the strips and someone
forwarded the comments to Scott Adams. He replied, saying that as a result
of the postings he had read, he was going to introduce a technical writer
character based on some of the personalities and stories from this list.
Theresa appeared about a month later.

I didn't realize this list had such a short institutional memory. (Say, I
just saw this great Dr Seuss computer parody thing...)
