Here I agree totally and wholeheartedly. This really pisses me
off, big time, if only because it confuses the hell out of the
people I support. I normally send emails to the sysadmin of the
site explaining the problem, and if I get no response from them
(I do ask for one, just to make sure my message is read by a
human, not just piped through to an unread mailbox), I try to
contact the management, suggesting they retrain or dump their
sysadmins. Petty, but _I_ enjoy it!
