That's for sure.

I think it was a case of incompetence on many sides and not malicious intent on anyone's part. But that doesn't lessen the impact. Hopefully, people took it as a lesson for the future. But as the article suggests, while one problem was addressed, others came forth to take its place. --And will probably continue to do so.
