ThyPeace,

You wrote, ThyPeace, notes that there are people who do stupid things everywhere. The private sector fires them. The public sector makes more rules.

You give the private sector too much credit. Don't you read Dilbert? People that do stupid things are as often as not promoted... ;-)

That type of thing is much harder to get away with in some tech companies though. Where I work now, even entry-level employees are often very self-confident and very vocal about their superior's failures...
