Fair enough. I guess I got carried away as well. Apologies for these wrong assumptions.

I thought Oracle strictly regulated Oracle-related posts of its employees. Now I know they don't.

Appreciate your concern. It would be more practical though not to scatter warnings and bashing across many threads but have a dedicated one. You could refresh it on a monthly basis.

That's all mostly true. As I said before I'm not making excuses for Don but I was talking how it all started- "the guy hadn't even posted until you brought him in".

I mean the new threads appeared _as_a_result_ of this one: How about an Oracle debate?

Don Burleson: The Index Rebuild Debate
Don Burleson: The "Silver Bullet" debate
Don Burleson: The Correct Default Buffer Cache Size

Whatever. If set such a standard for youself, I guess you're all right then. As long as you don't swear in a public transport :)

Again fair enough. Your career is not of my consern, should've brought it in. Already apologised for the wrong assumptions.

Finally read the first two pages from your document (don't you think all these wars are too distractive?). Just one very minor note - of course you can't use
sqlplus <<EOF
connect sys/password as sysdba

because the interactive dialog gets the first one or two lines as its input. Just remove 'connect' and you're in. It's in a lot of older scripts because afair /nolog appeared in O8. Better to use /nolog of course.
