After reading through this thread, I still fail to see the point of it. If you have run some tests and discovered something _new_ or interesting, then by all means post it. I've never come across any posts that insinuated the opposite.

Why then should anyone feel "obligated" to post anything? Also, why do you use the word "afraid" in your subject line? Seems a bit extreme to me.

How about this
If you have discovered something of _technical_ relevance to this Oracle list, then share it. Others I'm sure will continue to follow suit. Rather than a long pointless debate about this thread, lead by example.

Just my two cents.
