I really don’t think that the guy/gal was as talented as you claim. He/She delivered (or seemed like it) on your initial requirements while creating a spider web only he has the blue print to. Had he been, he would have not build suck a monstrosity. Just like one of the commenters , I think some other people should have been shown the door as well. Still thank you for the story even though the assessment was not correct IMHO.
