Like you, I used a lot of manuals...

That being said, from everything I have seen during my long career and my current involvement with my profession, I am coming to the conclusion that the Internet has made most things worse for all of us; especially how management treats us professionals and the way most companies now treat their customers. Combine this with all the criminality that is now ever present on the Internet and we have a "perfect storm" of dysfunction which is increasingly getting worse...
