Kind of... I've seen a title in someone's "list of publications" that I *knew*
she didn't write. She was involved in the production, but had nothing to do with
writing or editing. In her case it's possible that she was so
naive/ignorant/misguided that she didn't realize what a "list of publications"
meant (though the svengali who encouraged her to put this on her resume and
probably even wrote the resume knew darn well it was a lie, but that's another
story). With so many applicants who are either ignorant or evil enough to claim
credit for work they they didn't do, it makes sense to take any sample with a
grain of salt and treat it as a starting point for further questions, not
absolute proof of anything.

It's a sad, sad world...
