This is a deleted blog post by ORACLE's Chief Security Officer.

edit: corrected my error




Original, pre-deletion discussion: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=10039202


Until I clicked this link, it didn't occur to me that this blog post was only posted and then deleted in the last couple of hours.

My original thought was: "What an interesting artifact! So much has changed in recent years since open source databases have become a viable alternative to Oracle."


This is quite relevant in other spheres as well (racism, inequality, genocide). It's natural to create a bubble around us to keep the negativity at bay. But reality sometimes pops that bubble. It's always surprising how many have to interact with them for one reason or another.


So the original popped up earlier on HN - was it resubmitted because Oracle have decided to delete it?


I believe it was resubmitted because Oracle deleted it, and because it was so mustache-twirlingly out of touch that it could have been from the Hacker News Onion.


[...] it was so mustache-twirlingly out of touch that it could have been from the Hacker News.

FTFY :-P


Unless I am mistaken, that is exactly the case.


Oracle's, not Cisco's.
