Re: Drafts -- some people not clear on the concept...
Now, if a boss walks into your cubicle and picks up a working copy - that's not a
draft. That's a work in progress, and then you would have an arguable point.
<snipped a sentence I happen to agree with>
Just a correction. Steven WAS talking about instances in which someone grabs a work in progress off his desk before HE says it is draft quality, to wit:

I'm not knocking the first way of doing things, apparently it works well for some people. But when managers grab a rough cut of a document off my desk before I tell them it's ready to be looked at -- well, if they're not happy, it's their own damn fault and not mine. My clients who are patient enough to wait until I say I have something to show them have invariably been pleased."
