Sometimes it is indeed better to do whats right ...

instead of what you are told...

I don't think I could retain even the thin veneer of being an IT professional if I didn't - I'd just be a mindless drone.

This has however led me into a number of tricky situations having to explain myself, but strangely being right, often is a difficult position to be argued back out of, especially if the alternatives are worse (having some facts is useful)

I've largely got away with it for the last 30 years so it cant be all bad !
