Florida Admin

from here

This is an object lesson in why you don't give everyone the same username and password, and why you don't post that username and password on the Internet where everyone can find it. It's difficult to know who accessed the system and it's impossible to control who will access the system. Furthermore it's difficult to claim arbitrary people weren't supposed to access the system and that those arbitrary people should know that. Why give out the password if people aren't supposed to use it?

As for the title, I figure Florida Admin is a bit like Florida Man (or Florida Woman) but with technical responsibilities.
