Re: I don't understand

Clearly you don't work in infosec!! "taking advantage of the ignorance of the masses" is pretty much what we do, even those of us working in the trenches in corporate air-conditioned nightmareland. (Idiot IT directors and managers don't know how to do their jobs properly, so we get paid more than they do in order to point out to them what they're doing wrong.) It's pretty damn stressful, especially when no-one listens and you can't sob on a peer's shoulder and share your misery, believe me. Developing a healthy, jokey contempt for managers, PHBs and users is just one way of preserving your sanity. Others are available, but they have nasty side effects like liver failure, overdose, jail etc.
