Personally, I'm in the "against stupidity" camp.
I think it's pretty stupid when one person presents a schema, such as create table 3d_foo (x integer, y integer, z integer);
And then someone else asks "So, what's the schema?"
The schema was, of course,
create table 3d_foo (x integer, y integer, z integer);
Someone that isn't sharp enough to notice that is more than likely not sharp enough that they should be visiting comp.databases.theory, and claiming much of anything about any would-be difference between Oracle and Pick.
Like, "duh, the schema was create table 3d_foo (x integer, y integer, z integer);"
