For the record, I was only joking when I suggested that all tree questions may not be for real. They are frequently asked questions because storing heirarchical data in a relational model is an a common task with no obvious solutions.

BTW, if an author is providing an answer to a a question in a public newsgroup, it is not spam to mention their book as the source of that answer. In this situation the book mention is solicited and on-topic. I would advise authors to take advantage of the marketing opportunity of Usenet by providing valuable assistance to people in return of a brief and on-topic mention of their text.
