I swear there is a special place in hell for people who made these decisions. It's called support.


No, it's called the compliance/legal department. If you can't easily store data locally it makes things like implementing data retention evidence destruction policies much simpler.

An ex-employer started going down that road big time after being sued and apparently spending a ton of money on discovery having to try and scrape material from local stored PST files.

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius
