Should people who don't like large numbers not use Google? Should people who fear fire not use Firebase? Should people who don't like coffee not use Java? Moreover, should those people suggest the names be changed due to their phobia?
We could number all database servers. Server 1, Server 2, Server 3, Server 4... but 4 is unlucky in China, so we can't use that.
(PS: Yes if your target customers are Chinese you should avoid using number 4 especially in real estate)
Also, I understand your complaint about the name, as I’ve encountered many, many people with all sorts of phobias at varying levels of extremity. It’s more common than most people think.
Quick question, and don't take it the wrong way as I am truly trying to understand the extend of your commitment of not using it, but what if you were to receive a once in a lifetime job offer and after you start the team decided to switch to this database, would you quit? Your not physically working with any cockroaches so does the phobia extend to even just hearing and/or saying the term? Thx
Im not sure what will happened to my job but given an equal choice i would choose alternatives, job or database.
