There is definitely a difference -- but editors often also write.
In any case, to become a "technical editor" it follows that Brent would have at one time been a "technical writer," and, if you'll read his post he claims to have never been employed as a technical writer.
It makes one wonder.
So, what exactly is your point, Simon? Why are you so interested in discussing Brent Metcalfe's employment? How does the bear on the matter at hand?
Is this another case where you hide behind the principle (nominal form) of "tit for that"? So, you despise the fact that some people poke fun at Will Schryver for his professional profile, and, deciding that this is bad form, you decide to do the same to Brent Metcalfe? How does that work for you?
Do you generally punish people you perceive to be wrongdoers by perpetrating the same crimes against the offenders? If a person stole something from you, would you then go steal something from them? If a foul person raped a relative of yours, would you go rape one of the perpetrator's relatives?
More to the point, if you see a person urinate on the sidewalk, do you express your anger at this by doing the same thing?
I am extremely curious about this odd ethic you have adopted, which appears to be a direct contradiction of the principles (nominal form) of the religion you espouse and seek to defend. You are aware of the NT teaching, "by their works ye shall know them," yes?
