And yet, Just yesterday I fixed a mac that "forgot where the printer is",
Last week one fell off the domain and lost it's IP address.
I've got a pallet of repair returns that refused to boot, just white screened then funny symbol.All went out for repair and except for ten or so had no software problems, just needed to be re-imaged.
They're not magical fairy devices, they're computers. Which screw up. PC or Mac.

Plus, did you really just ask what a Domain Controller is?

You simply train them poorly. Follow the letter of the law, but not the spirit. Shortcut for a process that'snot covered in official documentation but secure and widely used? They don't need to know. Have them do everything twice, as some manual somewhere requires. Teach them the most ponderous and difficult tool for gaining network information, and demand they employ it. Make them into slow, barely worthwhile employees.

Oh god. Life becomes a constant battle. I used to try to do this, and you find yourself analyzing everything . I eventually decided, like Kwerle, that it didn't matter. If the chef at a local restaurant is a rabid Stalinist, I don't really care as long as it doesn't influence the food quality or taste. Sometimes you just don't bring up differences that don't matter to the subject at hand.

Obviously there's a limit to this. If he posts a "no blacks allowed" sign in the window, then I'm not going in either
