Throw it out of the woodwork

I had to enlist my “ol’ pal” to sort this one out.  She states that “crawled out of the woodwork” means something hidden came to light unexpectedly (like a cockroach or anything/anyone unwelcome).  “Thrown out for discussion” represents ideas that have to be considered by the group before a decision can be reached.  “Throw it out of the woodwork” seems to indicate forcing something hidden into the light of day, something that must be revealed.  I think she has hit the nail on the jackpot with this one.
