i'm not talking about morals here. i'm talking about the nitty gritty of building things in a stupid way simply because the customer so demands it because they have an immature notion of their business or product.

Who are you to judge that? Sure make suggestions but in the end we are all adults and are responsible for our actions.

If you are good at this job - understanding, caring about, clarifying, refining, building, integrating and maintaining someone's aspirational vision - then you are exactly perfect to make these judgements. Good clients appreciate and expect strong opinions and trust that their expensive advisors genuinely give a shit about their success.

If any of my clients suspected that I was only maximizing my consulting returns, I would have no clients.

why are you responding to my comments to other people?
