I keep my sanity by not worrying too much about it. When there is more than 
one person writing in the same document, it's unavoidable to get mixes of 
writing style.

The only way to fix it nicely is by one person doing a major re-write and 
rewrite all the current info in his/her own style so it all look concise as 
if written by one and the same person. I'm ok with doing just that but you 
can see how much time is spent on that. I don't really consider it a high 

Maybe we'll be better of with a style guide so no matter who writes blurbs, 
they all look similar.
