I've always seen databases as an index storage layer and thought that "outsourcing" the apps job to the database while convenient in a lot of cases, are hell to maintain at scale.
So yes I rather keep my databases light and get the app to deal with the processing as much as possible, throwing a new webserver at it when the growth requires it.
That's me deliberately misinterpreting your comment, beating the straw man with a killer counter-argument and declaring victory.
Dunno why everyone's taking this so personally. It's like they're personally threatened and their approach is to get angry rather than try and understand.
I guess people don't appreciate debating anymore.
