    If anyone wants to know my opinion, I think bureaucrats this stupid shouldn't be allowed to operate spreadsheets. Not even with adult supervision.

    I am sure some bureaucrats could be replaced with a single transistor, a

    What makes you think this had anything to do with a bureaucrat? It was probably just a secretary slipping with the mouse and moving the file onto a public folder of the server rather than the secure one. Frustrating for everyone affected, but these types of mistakes are just far too easy to do anymore.
