That is a matter of opinion.

No, they are not. There is no such thing as a newsgroup bully. They're protesting being spammed and rightfully so.

So, everybody is being a bully, except for you? You are a lone ranger against a gang of experienced Oracle DBA's? They're the people that keep this group interesting and are preventing people from asking questions like "how do I update a record, without locking it". Among other things, this type of reaction keeps spammers off the group, for the most part. If you feel bullied, it's your problem. I don't have a problem with telling someone that he's wrong when I think that he is wrong.

Ah, that's how a civilized debate is conducted in your world!

Advertising free anything makes me instantly suspicious. Personally, I wrote a free DBA tool but am not advertising it on this group. Advertising free anything in the place not meant for advertising is spam and I am hereby warning the author that the next post of that nature will be forwarded to SpamCop.

Can we do it in private? As for spelling errors, he's so poor that he doesn't have enough money for a spelling checker, is that it? If someone is advertising a book in English, then doing it properly and in accordance with the accepted grammar and spelling might be of some help. Me thinks that if someone suggests reading a book written in "me Tarzan, you Jane" garden variety of the English language, I'll have to think carefully about such proposition. BTW, as my name implies, English is not my first language, either.
