Re: No lazy stereotyping?
Dilbert as a training manual? Absolutely.
My (now ex) boss explained we had a new customer visiting for a site tour, and he may have very slightly exaggerated the number of staff... His idea was that we all sit downstairs with jackets on, then when he took the visitors up the main stairs we'd run up the back stairs and be working in the other dept in shirt sleeves - and the visitor wouldn't notice.
Having laughed him into derision, we noticed that the Dilbert on the back page of whichever magazine was http://dilbert.com/strip/2002-08-08.
Never did figure out if it was co-incidence...
Exactly... Some of us make our contact details available on purpose - but that won't stop the wrong ones being used.
As someone with an unusual surname you'd think it would be difficult to mix me up with anyone else; except there's someone with the exact same name, same age (within a couple of months) same geographic area, same business sector, and no relation. I get his linkedin requests and sales calls all the time.
Just hope he's not upset anyone lately.

danskebank.ie - They insist on using JRE but apparently that's OK because they use two-token authentication. Shame it's in the form of a handily copied credit-card sized bit of paper with a look-up table on it. (And, in the case of one user at least, a scribbled password in the corner.)
Their tech support chaps tell me it's fine using java in the browser - but you do need to make sure you trust your computer...
