A long, long time ago, in a software shop far, far away, clouds of bad management began to gather. The evil CEO, in his hooded shroud, commanded a dearth of Darth's that a powerful sphere-of-influence be built to help enforce His will. Rules and regulations would abound. Roles would be restricted. The twin suns were obscured and darkness covered the land.

It was the beginning of a period of Great Sadness.

At the time, nobody knew that a young Jedi coder named Luke SQLwalker would rise up to strike down the forces of evil.

Fast forward to the present day, and code-anthropologists uncovered irrefutable evidence of the time of Great Sadness:

SELECT a.permId, b.selectionId, b.description
  FROM pos.permissionIdent
    AS a INNER JOIN pos.accessRights
    AS b ON a.module   =  b.module
   AND a.permission    =  b.permission
 WHERE b.role_id       =  ':-('
   AND b.perm_type_id  =  1
   AND a.module        =  'POS'
   AND b.section_id IN ( 123, 456, 789 )
