Well, Margaret, speaking as one person who has very little contact
with writing centres, it sure wouldn't bore me to hear people
talking about issues like this. It's certainly not WC people alone
who face student (and colleague) assumptions about error and editing,
for instance. Or even managing appointments to discuss writing.

And if the rest of us _choose_ not to hide (and I suspect most
CASLLers would so choose), we face them too.
