I was sitting in on a meeting with sharp, enthusiastic students.  However, in the context of this interaction, no one was saying a word.  No one was contributing.  It was all I could do to not step in and create the answers that they needed, but that wasn't really going to help them in the long run.  I do have to say, it was maddening.

Can I just exhort you  - if you are going to be part of something, then please be an enthusiastic contributor; anything less is discouraging and disheartening .
