As one of the lucky ones who's been able to use MOS since Monday evening, I'd be happy if I could get rid of that stupid orange box that tells me I'm not using OCM. All I can do is shrink it a little. Misleading and annoying, especially for our users who are not technical (e.g. for JDEdwards business issues).

And there's no way they're ever going to convince me that I need to connect my DB servers to the Internet, direct or by proxy. Not gonna happen. Ever.

Perhaps Oracle Corp needs two levels of Support -- one for those that don't want to manage their DBs and another for those of us that do.
