I'm well aware this topic has been discussed at length in this forum, but I'm looking for specific stories from you guys about times when you've had to fix problems created by DIYers for inclusion in a magazine article about the proliferation of do-it-yourselfing. Any help would be appreciated.

We have many Horror stories around here as it is and things can get pretty heated discussing them. I don't think that this is something we really want to do that on purpose.

I'd suggest that anyone that would like to help out can send an email directly to Writerguy at his listed Email address.
