Remember I started this thread with the example of a request I sent to the
manager of DB Engineering...I saw him today face to face this morning...we
were passing in the hallway.

Me: "Did you get my email yesterday about getting copies of your server
Him: "yeah...they're on a shared drive, I'll send you the link at lunchtime.
However, now that I know someone besides the DBAs is looking at them, give
me a day to verify that they are still accurate."

Two benefits...others get the information and they are made "more accurate".

No "what are you doing snooping"

...does the end justify the means? That's kinda like the question "There are
no stupid questions."

Yes, often the end does justify the means, and yes, there are stupid
