Word of the day: blankface

An old one but good one from Scott Aaronson:

A blankface is anyone who enjoys wielding the power entrusted in them to make others miserable by acting like a cog in a broken machine, rather than like a human being with courage, judgment, and responsibility for their actions.

Dealing with some government bureaucracy today and boy does this word fit for some — not all! — of the people involved.
