Re: Marketing email - VENT
Would I really spend the afterlife chased by a guy in a little red suit
poking me with a pitchfork if I chose to return an *edited* email to the
salesdood that sent it to me considering that part of this company's market
is technical writers?
This is the curse of being a technical writer -- you constantly want to edit things around you. It used to bug me to have to wait for a bus next to a deli that sold "sandwitches." And just yesterday, a very well-read and reputable e-magazine I read started it's lead article with a sentence including the phrase: "... the site of the principle ferry...". I wonder what kind of ferry that is? The one that carries basic truths and laws from one area to another?
