THE GREATEST SCOURGE OF OUR AGE: here's what you need to know


I'm busy at work, but I just wanted to mention that I think one of the great scourges of our age is skimping on the word "the" in technical documents.

There is no reason to omit a "the" from a sentence, even when writing in point form. It does not make your technical writing look any better. It does not make you look like a better engineer than anyone else.

If you hate the word "the" so much, go back to Russia you goddamn commie.
