HTML isn't a programming language, it's a text markup (i.e. text formatting) language. SGML is a markup language. OpenGL is an API, not a programming language.

If HTML is a programming language, and creating HTML "pages" is "programming", then aren't you programming as soon as you turn on "reveal codes" in WordPerfect? How about "reveal formatting" in Word? Are you programming now just because you can see the formatting tags as you type text?

How about extortionists? Are they moral actors? I don't see how going from extortion on the internet to rape of a woman isn't shifting the goalposts.

I think Q put it best, when he said, about the internet:

"It's not safe out there. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it is NOT for the timid."

The OP doesn't see the procedure as a liability. That's a lie. The OP sees the CAB as a threat to his authority. He sees the servers as "his", and this will remove some of the power he has over them.

The OP needs to understand that the servers belong to the company, and that the company gets to decide how patches are approved and administered. If the job changes into something he's no longer interested in doing, then he needs to move on.

Being an asshole administrator might seem like fun, but usually, in "normal" businesses, it gets you fired.
