I've just read up on the c.o. thread that was the prelude to this little culture clash :
http://groups.google.nl/group/comp.object/browse_frm/thread/24dfa436896b15b9/a6bc5a2211f0a796?lnk=st&q=OO+Assoc+RDBMS+models&rnum=1&hl=nl#a6bc5a2211f0a796 and while I don't particularly like his style (as he well knows), Alfredo Novoa is IMO doing quite a good job at backing up his claims - especially those challenged in a clear way.
