@Hash: I too have heard a bit but I was expecting a turn around on it but it does not seem to be happening at least in the near future.

@Ariella, Thanks! The problem with engineers is that we usually think things through and consider the secondary outcome of actions, and often we consider the ultimate results much further down the road. It is one thing to start something, but those unintended consequences can certainly be unpleasant sometimes. It must be that considering the second and third order consequences is something that a lot of people avoid, since it does take a bit of effort and even some investigation.

One other thing is that it seems that many are unable to see the difference between correlation and causation, which certainly can lead to a whole lot of quite irrational decision making.

@hash & @Prabhakar: Well I think hash has a valid point here. I even too would have done the same if I had to face this kind of a scenario.

If you're management, which one would you use to make your budget?

@prbhakar: Exactly and that is why it has been rejected by many. If this is to be implemented yet again or proposed, I feel it should have a common law enforced to all.
