Steve:

Since this is a list mostly used by writers, I think that some people are not aware that the person asking the initial question was not talking about technical writing consultants, but about engineering consultants.

There's something that's been mentioned several times now by several posters that has me wondering, namely that consultants should by definition be good writers/communicators.

Is this so? I don't know the security business, to go back to Andrew's question, but isn't it possible that someone could really be great at analyzing a security setup, identifying any holes, and recommending the necessary fixes, without being a good writer?

I mean, are we in the writing business assuming that all consultants are writers because that's the kind some of us are?

Just asking.
