Why consult FOR??? I've always heard, and felt fine about, consult WITH...

I'd speculate most people would feel that if Bob consults WITH Ted, Bob is
asking Ted's advice, but if Bob consults FOR
Ted, Bob is working as a consultant for Ted. Does that fit the context of the
original posting?


Yes; that's why I don't want to say I consulted WITH Hugh. In fact, he consulted
with me, or consulted me.
