It sure is our job to get the information we need. But getting information
usually requires someone else having, and sharng the information.

If you have never been at places where getting information is not merely
challenging but impossible because those having the information won't share
it, you're lucky. I _have_ seen information withheld, for no other reason
but the ones having the information disliking the person needing the
information. Unfortunately, the people higher up in the hierarchy shared
the dislike. (I never understood why they disliked that person so much...)
The - inevitable - result was that the person needing the information was
unable to complete the task.

I am not so sure that such situations are as rare as some people seem to
