I'm just glad that whole Iraq war thing worked out. It sure is good to have the troops back home.

Not really a twit. He's rather clueless or very stressed.

Oh, I don't know, anyone who is less than helpful with information when asked a direct question and seriously wants help is a bit of one.

If you don't ask properly, you don't get a proper answer.

I wouldn't call this guy a twit (yet) but I predict he becomes the user with the fewest total posts that earns a custom title:

I was wondering if he'd get a mention here. The idea that we should provide a bad example of an outer join so he can prove his point is bizarre. I've worked with some strange people in the past but I've never come across someone who would argue a point, ask for a counter example and then complain that the counter example wasn't weak enough to buttress his point.

I've been having a little debate with him on this other thread. Didn't seem too pleased when I called him on a few points.

You have to be prepared to defend it when you start talking in absolutes, so welcome to SQLTeam.

I don't understand what's so hard about admitting when you're wrong. "Oh I see my mistake now.. Thanks".

I'd much rather someone point out when I'm wrong so I don't keep making the same mistake over and over.

Admitting you are wrong becomes more difficult if you've been preaching that 2+2=5 since you first disagreed with your second grade math teacher 20 years ago.

Or admitting you are wrong when you are used to having your statements go unchallenged by subordinates who don’t want to lose their jobs and peers who don’t feel like getting in an argument with someone who won’t listen anyway.

You might want to wait and see if he ever posts again.

I'm immediately suspicious of anyone who self identifies as a "guru". Heh "symphonise databases".

He's awfully impressed with himself.

I like this one:
"Oh dear. Just new to this site, love the idea of ONLY experts answering questions (and avoiding the cacophony of everyone else) let's see what happens ..."

Yes, it's so much better when you don't have people calling you on your BS.

How does that site decide who the experts are?
