Yer - what ever you believe Niall.
MVP programme has been going since before 1998, when did the oracle ace programme start?
I think rather than established, i think oracle is playing catch up when it comes to community and frankly has a long long way to go.

It's not how I work - but certainly I understand that I'm perhaps a bit unusual, and in an case hadn't seen you being on the receiving end.

Indeed, I see as similar to the Oracle ACE designation that Daniel has (http://apex.oracle.com/pls/otn/f?p=19297:4:182894176719382::NO: 4:P4_ID:32 ) though more established. It still seems to me a pity that community leaders have been 'dishing it out' but I'm sorry that it appears I incorrectly attributed that to just you. Niall
