Further to the closing of said thread (see previous post) on Burleson's DBA forum, I am now banned from that forum and the two threads that I started were deleted much like Burleson's requested deletions of his mostly incorrect postings to c.d.o.s.
It's really sad that it's funny. Both Mike A and Don B are well-known in the Oracle community and have marketed themselves as the "gurus" for Oracle but unfortnately, their reputations were over-blown (IMMHO). Ah well, I can always browse the site from a different IP, assuming that the Cherry Sisters are willing. You might well ask "Why bother?". Well, I guessed it's for the entertainment value or as someone else put it, "it's like watching a train wreck, you are just fascinated by the sight." Thanks to David Aldridge, I'm now infamous as being another member banned by Burleson and have my own entry in his blog and also he started a new thread at dbasupport.
