Corporate suits also would probably prefer if workers could not tack
their kid's artwork up in their cubicles, hang a rubber clown mask off
the edge of the desk and bring in their lucky golf ball. These are silly
frivolous things, but they also make an otherwise sterile environment
human and semi-livable. With self expression comes some bad things, its
true. Corporations want "productivity", so some things like limiting
preferences where they aren't useful can be more efficient. On the other
hand, there's a line you can cross...
