Go back one more post. You'll see that my post was in response to someone (can't remember who, and haven't figure out how to find out) who said something on the order of: Some OO people feel that OO system should be designed such that searching RDBs is not needed. Or something like that.

Novao's response was non-sequitur, his facts were not coordinated. (That's a little joke... Does anybody know where it came from?) His response was insulting, and misplaced, since it was not I who had made the assertion that RDBs and Searching were coupled. (Although I do think that searching, or rather querying, is a function of most RDBMS systems)
