Ever heard of "gruntled" workers?

We always hear about "disgruntled workers" wreaking havoc on computer systems and sensitive information. Interestingly we never hear about "gruntled" workers and how they can help improve security...

Thanks to a Merriam Webster's "Word of the Day" I came across I now know that there's another side to the overused word "disgruntled". Interestingly, according to M-W, the prefix "dis-" usually means "to do the opposite of," hence the assumption that if there is a "disgruntle," there must have first been a "gruntle" with exactly the opposite meaning. Apparently "dis-" doesn’t always work that way...

No matter how old we get we learn something new every day...Here's to happy, content, and gruntled workers contributing more to information security than they take away! ;-)
