Dijkstra should have said "Astrology"...

Probably another his citation may apply here, that about BASIC. It looks that exposure to SQL causes similar effects. Or, is it abstraction [away] of logical model went too far? So far that some of our honored posters from c.d.t. (surely otherwise sensible and intelligent gentlemen) just do not notice their fingers keeping on typing nothing but "fool", "idiot", "moron."

Is it a necessary part of data-centric view not to care about oneself's behavior?

P.S. Give up Steve. You have already invested much time in order to educate our topmind, unfortunately against his will, and, alas, without sustainable effects. But he at least has manners acceptable out of sty...
