I don't know who is more messed up here, Dilbert or the webmaster. I've had much of this nonsense, in web design and in many other areas. Successful change, all glory to the boss. Failure, all blame goes to you. Dilbert hasn't learned that to be a success in Corpmerica thou shalt not take risks. The webmaster hasn't learned that the best response to any change is "Gosh, why didn't I think of that?" My old boss specialized in vague directives: "Make it sleek and high-tech! Make it flow." Her go-to decision was to NOT make a decision. I'm thankful I'm out of it.
