Indeed. To me that's exactly how it reads. All the arguments put forward in its favour are nothing but a pile of marketing excrement: the thing is just a ruse to nail sites to the RAC bandwagon, period. Never mind if folks need RAC or not, that's immaterial!
Just like the idiotic videos of the 2 dbas, with the "savvy looking girl" doing "everything with a click of the mouse". Most of what she does, she'd simply be fired on the spot at most sites... Received on Wed Dec 30 2009 - 07:54:14 CST
