I do. Annoys the h*** out of people when I tell them it doesn't make any sense.

At one company a contractor that one of the owners liked was brought in to solve problems. No idea what problems because I never saw anything he suggested (and company paid for) used.

But in one meeting he presented a solution that would handle several million users logged into the system at once. I sat through most of that, then question why he decided we would need that problem solved - specifically where he came up with millions of users. He answered by claiming that that was outside of my need to know space. Fortunately one of the other owners was also in that meeting and he immediately piped up to state that he wanted to know that also. The Consultant kind of nervously looked around and side stepped by suggesting he would send it later.

I never saw it.

At some point I sized the application using existing business data. From that if the application owned the entire market it would never have more than about 3,000 users. And most of them would never be using it constantly.
