This group is not the only place where truth must be defended. When you hear something such as *systematic treatment of missing data* = *Codd OKed use of NULLS* how would *you* react. When you hear that handling NULLS's destructive impact should be done applicatively instead of simply not using them at all, you get irritated. When after providing code to show NULL absurdity and showing it is possible to totally get rid of NULLS at design time and demonstrating the absurdity of claims made people just stick to their silly beliefs, insult you then censor you, how would you react...If you sympathize with people like that then I am sorry for you....
