People really don't proof-read anymore.

I recently wrote an instruction manual for a product - and I'm pretty sure no one else read it except for the translator. Grammatically, it was fine, but I went into way too much detail (perhaps as suss is suggesting Ford do) on fool-proofing it so that the consumer wouldn't get injured as well as all of this technical mumbo jumbo that I eventually reworded it in layman's terms in the Revision B.

Not that it matters - the manual could say that the car runs on pixie dust and since no one reads it, no one would ever know.
