In a perfect environment this is true. In an environment where the
PHBs are overstretched because their PHBs aren't up to much, that
filter function tends to become a full roadblock. Under those
circumstances you have three choices: 1) defeat the data hiding
by talking to Fred directly; 2) defeat the data hiding by hacking
away yourself and getting Fred's forgiveness later; 3) give up.
See, we're back on topic!
