 I am a self-avowed practicing bacon and shellfish eater. Sometimes I eat them TOGETHER. I also wear blended fabrics ALL THE TIME! I guess I am truly unfit to ever be Clergy in the UMC.

We are all sinners.

Why are some sinners singled out for special punishment?

Microsoft Azure data deleted because of DNS outage – Naked Security

Oh wow!  
This looks like a rather poor design. 
No failsafe? 

Microsoft deleted several Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) databases in Azure, holding live customer information. TDE databases dynamically encrypt the information they store, decrypting it when customers access it. Keeping the data encrypted at rest stops an intruder with access to the database from reading the information.

While there are different approaches to encrypting these tables, many Azure users store their own encryption keys in Microsoft's Key Vault encryption key management system, in a process called Bring Your Own Key (BYOK).

The deletions were automated, triggered by a script that drops TDE database tables when their corresponding keys can no longer be accessed in the Key Vault, explained Microsoft in a letter reportedly sent to customers
