        Before implementing a DBMS -- I guess that's what you incorrectly calls a database -- you have to have a model. You don't. You don't even understand the literature, the current model and products. You can't even be precise with your nomenclature, yet you want to criticise your betters.

        I simply don't think it worthwhile of my time to take your challenge.
