      I agree entirely, Ron, and my suggestion was not totally serious ... but unfortunately there are some managers who just cannot control themselves, and it is virtually impossible to be transparent with them. Any admission of a problem or a mistake made, or similar admission, is just what such a manager is looking for to allow him (or her) to assert their power and authority. Subterfuge is sometimes a survival tactic.

      I've probably done such things, but in the end, the relationship
      between team and management cannot prosper unless we work toward
      transparency. This would be a step away from transparency in my
      opinion, and as such a very bad precedent.

      If there's only one answer, then this must not be a very interesting topic.
