Newsgroups

Here are some interesting posts on
comp.databases.oracle.server

Follow up (new post) .

This person is complaining to the news group that the information provided by the helpful folks in group was not appropriate and actually caused the company the person is employed with to pay a fine. I would assume because the person wasn't able to get the instant answer they were looking for so it is the communities fault.

This person really flabbergasts me. I would love to have a long conversation with this person going over the basics of problem solving and the importance of testing and benchmarking thoroughly. I have a feeling it would be a waste of time and effort on my part, something akin to talking to a lamp post.

News groups are great, forums are great. Excellent way to get information. But always check that information out first.

After reading a few other posts by the same author. I would recommend a few hundred hours of professional oracle training for the individual.
