Ah, but it can have positive effects:
In my last job a non-developer who will remain nameless downloaded
the results of a scripted page, "updated" it and then copied it over
the actual script, he then complained that the site wasn't working
and demanded it was fixed. This was just after I heard about the job
here, so I updated my CV and sent it in before I fixed the site.
Otherwise I might have still been working there when it went
dot-bomb.
