I've been known to find a crack in such armor when I start asking for 
information on the regulation so that I can read up on it and learn ~> 
understand it.  If it's real, they can usually get it to me in a week or 
so.  If it's fake, I get crickets until I push and escalate for the 
information, at which point I find out "it's company policy".
