At one of my recent gigs all of us took turns being the person on call for the week. As part of our daily tasks we approved PRs. It soon became obvious who was productive and who was not. More than one of us mentioned to our manager that contributor X was not doing a d@mned thing. We finally kicked them out of the group. Keeping a bad apple is toxic for the rest.

In a small group it's difficult to hide. In larger companies it's easier. When management itself is hiding, the whole tree is rotten ...

I kind of experienced the latter ... :/
