Don:
Susan's original question was (in my own words) "how can a manager tell if
people are wasting time?"

My answer was that a manager can easily tell when people are wasting
time--and without having to micro-manage. The obvious hallmarks of a
time-waster (as listed previously) surface quickly and are self-evident.
I've managed a writing group (so far) for three years--and I've seen all
the tricks I listed.

'Nuff said. I've wasted enough time on this thead.
