Most companies I worked for had this policy in place. There was always a special member of the sales team to do the final editing: he or she was picked for having good writing skills :)

I actually worked for a company like this once. We werent allowed to go to lunch with each other (i.e. Marketing with Claims, etc) Of course we did, but we just had to be sneaky about it.

As a policy, it's breathtakingly stupid and dishonest, but I wouldn't be surprised if some companies used it.

I had a sales person on the line saying 'I know from the type of organisation you are, that we can help you to fulfil your mission' or some such blah, and wouldn't get off the line. I then ask exactly what product or service they can provide that can help, and they say they'll get an engineer to give me a ringback. The point of sales people is to know nothing, and ensure you don't know anything about what they want to sell you.

to BlueSky111-- My manager said his request for an computer upgrade for himself wasn't approved, so I bought the memory (2 GB for $30) myself. It helps a lot on XP.

I think the moment this strip reaches genius is when the PHB says "Why are you like this?". Fantastic strip. I'm glad I work in a small company and don't have to deal with that cr@p anymore.
