Do you think Dilbert's finally taken a lesson from Wally in not caring? PHB will ultimately do what he wants to do anyway so Dilbert saved frustration of not researching and handing in a blank page; and more frustration in that PHB would illogically go the opposite direction of where the research is pointing.

It's a win win, PHB gets to feel even more like he's leading and Dilbert didn't have any increased workload.
