Subject: LOB objects  

Can anyone point me to some practical pages or experience working with CLOBs. We have some databases that are using CLOBs, and will be using them more.  

So I am interested it things like 'do they grow forever' i.e. deletions really don't happen physically, (if that is so, what to do about it). Tuning: If that is necessary, all aspects, gothas. Things I could or should do?
