Yup. Fair enough. Thanks.

I wouldn't even go that far. I don't *know* what their policy is. All I know is, they never had one to which I was subjected. (Quite different, by the way, from their very well-established policies regarding websites, publications or books. Somehow, usenet didn't count as any of that, though I have no idea why).

With respect, I didn't scatter it across many threads. I mentioned it in this one. And that was in response to someone asking 'there aren't any bad people in the Oracle community, are there'? But as I say, you're perfectly entitled to not like what's happened (I can't say I'm exactly overjoyed about it either), and I won't threaten to sue you for daring to disagree with me. :-)

None of those are mine, though. Don started the first one. And Richard began the other 3, I think, in a perfectly reasonable attempt to pin Don down to hard and fast technical matters. But whatever: you can't hold poster A responsible for entirely different threads that pop up elsewhere initiated by posters B and C.

Can you mail me the business about /nolog. I didn't quite understand what you were saying here.
