I see it again and again and have done for years - outsourcing to places like India is an illusory financial cost cutting exercise. Outsourcing outfits are there to make a profit, and to maximise it, they lie, cheat, steal, create delays and bugs - plenty of bugs, but then try to cover that up.
To fix all of this takes a lot of management and that costs much more than the 20% savings in coding costs per hour.
Re: Out sourcing
It's blindingly obvious to anyone who has any sort of physical involvement, unfortunately whatever the higher up decision makers get exposed to shows no reflection of any of it.
As to the rest, the quality and pain is obvious to most, but my company have actually caught 2 of the ones we work with directly stealing our ip to try and sell to other companies as something they've developed. Disturbingly, we are still working with them without censure as no one would push it up the chain.
I've been asked to verify the contents of a document before, only to find it was a copy/paste job from a presentation I'd created a year or so before, only it was now on their company stationary, and cheekily even had copyright notices on it.

zuckerburg took our gift and our beauty and our resources
and used them to create filth, and destruction. He built a gateway for evil into the world and he saw that it was good. Now he is rubbing his hands, because his human resources are blissfully unaware of their domination, for now. Facebook wants to make next year your last social year.

They have your photos from CCTV and new algorithms based off youtube comments are generating hatemail in your name. Facebook is setting up millions of black accounts. they are your evil twin,
but the authorities know their number is yours. you cannot see your black account as Facebook puppets it to destroy your image and usher in everything unholy. Zuckerburg is creating in his image a world of inadequacy and suffering. you see it in the imagery he uses, in the clothes he wears, how he is doing things secretly. you know that evil is as evil does.
