Start with a cage containing five monkeys (read VD'rs), inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it. Before long, a monkey will start to climb towards the banana, as soon as he touches the stairs, spray all the other monkeys with cold water.
After a while, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result, all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.
Now, put away the cold water, Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his surprise and horror, all the other monkeys attack him.
After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted. Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm!
Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then the fourth, then the fifth. Everytime the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked. Most of the monkeys that are beating him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs or why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.
After replacing all the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever again approaches the stairs to try for the banana. Why not? Because as far as they know, that's the way its always been done around here.
And that, my friends, is how a company policy begins.

I beleive this is true.
But the worst of it is that "managers" believe that following the established ritual is good practice; and 'tick boxes' without thinking why

Where are you? Why are you here? Look at this

A bit like commentary on 911.

Cynic, n: a blackguard whose faulty vision sees things as they are, not as they ought to be.
