That nebulous nugget of tech support clickbait that anyone in a position of responsibility is forced to drill down on in order to make sure we've properly covered our asses even though it is most likely some other form of content, user or other error in perception of difference between what "up" really means and what "down" really is.

Of the many challenges we face as software developers, getting our code through the code review and QA/regression testing process is often one of the more challenging.
