I have to agree with you, the negative vibe of this forum is pervasive. You have to understand is beyond the laws of physics for Sybrand to not respond. I too am a long time lurker, and the depth of Sybrand's bitterness and hostility never ceases to amaze me. However, none of us will ever understand the terrible, terrible burden he has to bear answering all these stupid, stupid questions. Personally, I just speak out loud my question and the Oracle documentation opens up exactly to the right place. I have never had trouble finding information in the Oracle docs as they are so few and so concise that its like, well, taking candy from a baby.

I post this knowing I will likely have to look elsewhere for help after he reads this, but that's ok, as he obviously doesn't like helping either end of the spectrum with his advice, newbies OR paid professionals - "So it now appears you are asking to assist you for free, what you get paid for. My-my! Please in the future note this upfront and I won't bother to respond." Who DOES he like helping? In fact, I think the only things he truly likes are spewing vitriol and suffering fools.

"Have you never noticed how Tom Kyte treats those people? There is really not much difference between me and him." I should sue you Sybrand, this comment made me spit up my coffee and nearly ruined my keyboard.

Ok, I feel better now. Returning to lurker mode. Received on Tue Oct 21 2008 - 11:45:02 CDT
