Discussion on: How do you identify "over-engineering"?

When a co-worker keyboard or mouse comes flying past the head because it took them 8 hours to add a simple database read call.. Just kidding.

i will first ask what is over engineering? What do we mean by it? For a lot of people 'over engineering' means doing thing the way it should be.

Any how, i look at how may calls it makes to do something? How many objects it passes through to achieve something? How many 'layers' it does through to complete a task?
