Hey, you got downvoted too. Gave you a bump.

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.

If I had to guess, I'd say that people are downvoting you because even the MySQL guys who spent the 90s arguing against it have now come around to thinking that foreign keys and transactions and stored procs are good things, and they can't be bothered to engage in the discussion again.

My beef was PL/SQL and too much of the transactions/storedprocs thing. Foreign keys can be a good thing.

^^ I don't get it either. If someone doesn't agree they might as well say so and give reasons to get a discussion going. Instead we get this "Ohh the article said X so you're wrong, I'll downvote and move along" attitude.

I guess people don't appreciate debating anymore.
