What to say about a writer that confuses *Systematic treatment of missing data* as an *OK for using NULLS*. What to say about a writer who, provided with simple proofs of impact of using NULLS and a proof that no using them will help avoid all sorts of crappy problems...What to say about a person whose best mentor is an self aggrandizing ignorant such Joe CELKO...Finally what to say about an editor (Steve Jones) who banned my account for so called unprofessional conduct and left people who used terms such as **hole and **mean without producing a single sound argument...
