My point exactly. That's why we have a DR facility setup. It's to - wait for it - recover from *disasters*! Which are a lot more widespread in definition that just someone inadvertently dropping a table.
Although of course losing any table is part of that definition and why it is covered by DR.
If I didn't have that setup then recyclebin might be a consideration. As is it's totally redundant, buggy and therefore not used. Keep it simple is an essential part of any DR setup. ;)
