Automation is a double edged sword that often slices the wrong way.
The negative impact of not thinking everything through can be devastating. You intend to do one thing, and something else happens. I often get blamed for doing something automatically, which in the end the blame does fall on me. I often do these automated tasks to make the lives of my co-workers easier.
* Note to self: don’t do it. It’s not worth it. The risk is too high.
