This question was posted a couple days ago:
Three of four answers stop just short of saying the CEO is a criminal:
if the CEO is getting some sort of kickbacks for spending the corporation's money in a certain way, they are breaking the law. They are not just doing something shady or immoral, this is white collar crime that can carry a jail term. In a more lenient case it would just be a shareholder lawsuit. Either way, this is a pretty serious matter.
Quite possibly the behavior of this manager is criminal. If it has left your customers exposed, it will destroy your business.
If you are sourcing work from a company that you are the slightest affiliated with, you are in a conflict of interests. This may potentially be very harmful to the company that you are working for and in some cases illegal.
The latter two answers are the more extreme of the three (MrFox lists illegality as only two out of three possible explanations in this case), and are both heavily downvoted, but I strongly feel that these sorts of answers are not appropriate and should be flagged/removed.
We do not provide legal advice because that is the realm of a lawyer. While not legal advice, accusing third-parties of illegality or wrongdoing on the basis of a question has a huge potential for harm if the person asking takes action based on those (potentially very wrong) assumptions.
Should we flag answers that imply the legality/illegality of actions as asking for legal advice so as to have them removed? Is downvoting the only appropriate recourse?
