This is a false dichotomy. Computers and networks exist so their users
can do work. System and network administrators exist so users can
concentrate on their work and not be distracted by the foibles of the
equipment. Thus, the interests of administrators are in fact aligned
with those of users.

To demonstrate this principle, set your firewall to block port 80.
