Yes it is flattering to have someone think of you as the person to go
to. The two problems I have with it are (1) it's embarrassing if I don't
know the answer, and (2) if I'm constantly dealing with these questions,
I can't get my regular job done.

It shouldn't be embarrassing if you don't know an answer to a question
outside of the document world... they didn't know it either. You'll
both while from finding out the answer. One reason people like to play
"Ask A Tech Writer" is because even if the tech writer doesn't know the
answer, they probably have a good idea who does.
