I wonder how many other tech writers out there are in
situations like Karen's. I, for one, wouldn't tolerate
it. Then again, I'm a big-time team player. That
doesn't mean I do what the team wants. Rather, I
question everything and make sure we, the team, are
doing things right from the beginning and are thinking
things through. *sigh*

There *is* an "I" in team, and you need to keep it
open at all times to make the team work.
