Er, it is considered best practice. In my experience, adopting best practice from the beginning, while taking slightly longer to get up and running, ensures a supportable system.

Yet you say that you don't have time to learn the basics? Not the best way to learn, IMHO.

A newbie who seems unwilling to learn from experienced professionals and, rather than conforming to prescribed standards, would rather invent their own based on what experience exactly?

As I said above, you seem unwilling - whether by time constraint or some other reason - to learn the basics. In my experience this leads to badly designed and poorly performing systems that, ultimately, mugs like me are then expected to support.

For that reason, I'm out. :)
