...you scare of "local Gods", who turn everything to be how he likes, despite common standards and best practices. Agree 100%!

But most scary thing is these clowns leave the job and spread everywhere how genius they were on position "Senior God of IT department" and asks for position a step (or two) above! And needless to say most of such "hell knows what" came from India after 2-weeks courses "PHP for complete idiots" being given gold stamped "certificate".
