Why, oh why do so many people looking for help think that "query help" is a good title to get people interested in their topic?

If you have a pain in your chest, do you go to the doctor and shout "body help" ?

Come on people, make your topic title relevant and informative, please!

    If you have a pain in your chest, do you go to the doctor and shout "body help" ?

    Nope, you call up and shout "Urgent! Body Help Now!".

    Then one of three things: -
    • hang up and never come back again

    • Stay on the line and complain that they're stupid and not helpful when they ask follow up questions

    • Call them rude for explaining how to help yourself

    Not a DBA, just trying to learn

    If you litter your database queries with nolock query hints, are you aware of the side effects?
    Try reading a few of these links...

    (*) Missing rows with nolock
    (*) Allocation order scans with nolock
    (*) Consistency issues with nolock
    (*) Transient Corruption Errors in SQL Server error log caused by nolock
    (*) Dirty reads, read errors, reading rows twice and missing rows with nolock
