Whenever people say "SOX requires this" I think they lie; no, I'll
take that back, I meant "I *know* they lie". But I'm interested to know
how these incompetents who peddle their services as SOX compliance
salesmen sell this.
SOX is yet another ploy by accountants and their friends in
Congress to make money without doing actual work.
Enron should not have buried Arthur Anderson; it should have buried
accounting as a reputable profession.
