Can be useful to collect these stories
I tend to collect these types of stories for use in future project discussions. Sounds harsh, but having a real horror story can bring to life discussions on architecture, design and best security practices when you have some smart ass project manager briefing against you for trying to slow down a deliverable.
Always ensure key stakeholders hear the message and, more importantly, that it is in the minutes that this was discussed in their presence.
Doesn’t always work, but I reckon that I have prevented one or two cock-ups using this this (I once used The Mars Climate Orbiter as an example of needing good data architecture that aligned common reference data).
