    I would react with an intervention stating what I noticed and asking if someone else noticed it too. If yes, I would ask how in impacts the group and if we there is a need of setting any rules regulating this issue.

    I would pause a beat and see how the recipient of the note responds. If they tuck it away and stay engaged, I would likely let it go. If they allow it to cause them a distraction or disengagement from the process . . . or if I sense that it created a lingering distraction for the group as a whole . . . then I would bring it up at the next check-in point as an observation and ask the group for thoughts and input on the need to create some guidelines around allowing our process to be disrupted in this way.
