E-mail: Tool of Professional Self Destruction

A front page New York Times story indicates even prestigious law firms are not immune to clueless behavior:

Four men, who were charged by New York prosecutors on Thursday with orchestrating a nearly four-year scheme to manipulate the firm’s books to keep it afloat during the financial crisis, talked openly in emails about “fake income,” “accounting tricks” and their ability to fool the firm’s “clueless auditor,” the prosecutors said.

Dumb, dumb, dumb. Don’t engage in conduct like this, and if you must, show some common sense.
