I suspect that mostly people were caught a little flat-footed.
I also suspect that, at least among the newbie writers, decisions
were made for them that they didn't realize they could question.

I've only encountered a single instance where someone deliberately
falsified a portfolio, and it was very easy to determine. The
point I was trying to make, and may have failed to, is that only
by probing can you find out the level of involvement a candidate
has had with document development. And even if someone wasn't
intimately involved with, say, layout and design, that person
may have valuable insight into what was good and what was bad
about the design.
