Avast, me hearties! Once again, we’ve arrived at 19 September, Talk Like a Pirate Day! On this day, all posts will be automatically converted to pirate talk. They will revert to normal after today (or after a few days as this is the weekend). Because this is automated, the wording will be a little different each time you refresh the page.
Enjoy all the piratey goodness today!
This list is the result of a thread started on the Techwr-l listserver group about the biggest lies we, as technical writers, hear on an almost weekly basis. I’d love to give credit to individuals, but there were about as many people as lies in this list.
