An increasingly common plague found in the work place which causes annoyance and despair in other co-workers. Thrives on board-meetings, dependent on company mobile phones, Outlook, and a considerable yearly budget with no questions asked on how its gets pissed up the wall on nothing. Able to speak but prefers to do any communication through email which is the sole purpose of computers.

Uses any opportunity to voice their opinions and set policy on matters which are none of their concern and to which they have knowledge of. Usually the bane of any Web-Developers existence.

Able to plan projects perfectly without any of the minor concerns such as development or implementation.

Curiously, all Marketing plague-people start as a Manager. There is no lower position available although there is never actually anyone to manage.

The only tool you have to learn if you wish to pursue a career in Marketing, any other knowledge is unnecessary. Such people have become kindly referred to as "Cut And Paste Outlook Technicians" by System Admins as this terms accurately describes the sum of their computer knowledge.

When used by Marketing personnel, Outlook must take on special powers which allows it to handle attachments of many Gigabytes. This is all achieved by repeating clicking the Send/Receive button. Marketing people also have intricate knowledge of all of Outlook's flags and colour-coding systems as this allows the recipients of their many emails to read them in order from “URGENT” through to “VERY URGENT”. This also helps to optimise the passing-the-blame process for when things go wrong.
