Maybe FEWER twits, as long as we are on the subject of grammar and syntax.

sheesh.

I'm guess I'm lucky that the human brain's english parser is more forgiving than t-sql's parser...

I don't think he's a twit. He's just someone with a really bad idea.

Yup. Perhaps I didn't paint enough of a picture. The major point with that post is that the question was asked perfectly and it received a comprehensive answer in just 10 minutes (care of KH). I have a couple of how to ask\ how not to ask questions bookmarked at DBForums that I sometimes wheelout - the amount of help each approach elicits speaks volumes.

It's so rare to see a question asked perfectly because:
1. The people capable of doing that are the ones least likely to need help to begin with.
2. There are far more lazy and/or stupid people who can’t or just don’t feel like it.

If stupidity were an energy source, the worlds energy supply would be inexhaustible.
