I once had a manager who would ask for your opinion and then tell you why it was wrong and his was correct.

I also used that methodology. But the response was "I'm not the one who will build this, and you all are way smarter than I am"

Hahaha.. I have this everyday. "What are your thoughts on X" followed by "And you don't believe that Y is correct?!! That's strange..."

Hardly strange when a quick Google search backs your opinion in owasp manual lol
