Who among us hasn't done this?
Who hasn't gone to "save" a major court decision before a jury delivered its decision and then accidentally selected "send," moved to upload the doc to a public government server, breezed through the doubtlessly numerous redundant confirmation messages, and then finally posted the PDF online, again all by total accident?
The Fulton County Clerk of Courts admitted to accidentally releasing the fourth indictment on former President Donald Trump. She said she pressed send instead of save on the document. "I am human," Ché Alexander told Channel 2's Tom Jones on Tuesday. She was apparently under a lot of pressure to make sure the process went smoothly and made the oncoming indictment public.
So you're telling me the Fulton County Courts content management system has two buttons on the backend - this one:
...and this one:
And, what, are they right next to each other? They designed the system to have only two diametrically opposed buttons, located right next to each other, with no safeguards in place to ensure you don't "save" when you want to "send?"
Sounds like the best-designed computer system in the history of computers or systems. I totally believe this story now.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to save this post and come back to it later...
