Otherwise, they should wait.

There was a time (prior to the 2011 edition of the rule book) where the rules stated that one wasn't properly holed out until their disc came to rest in the target and remained there until it was removed from the target. In other words, the next player shouldn't throw with another disc in the basket because the first player wasn't finished holing out until he'd pulled his disc from the basket.

Lots of players, myself included, automatically go to retrieve their disc immediately after making the putt due to that old rule, with no consideration to the possibility that someone else is going to not give us the time to do it by putting immediately.
Ah, the old wedgie/nub hanger putt. Better run and get it before it falls out or it doesn't count!!

Same goes with me putting after someone. If they go for the basket I wait but If they just stand there I have no issue putting with another disc in the chains


This exactly. Last to putt scooping out the basket and frisbeeing back to owners is one of my favorite things and common in my casual groups. (Even for Kevin’s lumpy gross soft magnet and Tom’s greasy oMegas.)

We needs a poll on this one? Something like ... I always clear and expect others to always clear, In tourney/league play I always clear and expect it, I clear always but do not expect others to, clearing and expectation variable on the group, I rarely clear unless asked first

My option would be "I always try to clear but if I see someone lining up a putt I wait".

This would be my choice in casual settings. In competition...I'm clearing it regardless of what the next guy is doing. And I'm not pausing five feet away with my back to the basket/thrower after I've retrieved the disc either. I'm going to keep moving until I'm well out of the thrower's line, then I'm turning around to watch. If the thrower can't wait for that, too bad.
