    actually, i've heard the real reason is corporate liability ...
    that said, there is an advantage for team f2f mtgs on a periodic
    basis.

I don't follow.  Could you elaborate?  What is the liability?

I don't know for certain, but I expect "work at home' employeees fall under
the scope of the employers "Workmans Compenstation" liability covrerage,
with regard to injuries sustained "on the job".

Now, I'm sure the facts of the matter haven't gotten in the way of the story
there, but I'm struggling to come up with a set of circumstances which
*don't* involve an application of palm to face.
