My job largely consists of dealing with self-appointed 'experts' like you. You are clearly explained export is not a back-up, yet you maintain export is a back-up. You probably do that because you

a) either didn't read the answer at all
b) don't understand it, but are too proud to ask
c) you are just someone arrogant who has exactly zilch knowledge of
Oracle, and claim to know everything better. This attitude is often found with developers, who, in order to hide their incompetency, shout 'impossible' to every proposal to make their (cr)app better, just because it would prove them to be incorrect and incompetent.

You claim I insulted you. That is not true. You insulted me by stating over and over again export is a backup. This is not difference of opinion, it is a *fact* export is not a backup. You expose yourself as an idiot. Then you start barking RMAN doesn't work. You may have looked at it five minutes, yet you refuse to take advice from people who work with RMAN and who *do* know what they are talking about. You state I don't offer help. Obviously that is incorrect too. Any help I offer you is dismissed because for some reason my help doesn't suit you.

I'm just curious where your fucking arrogant attitude comes from. Have you really been beated up that badly in your childhood?
