I agree.

It was just about tolerable the first time, but not twice.

The first time I let it go because it made me remember the word portmanteau

I think I am right in saying that forum pages are indexed by the likes of GoogleTM - so your choice of word may end up being seen by audiences you did not anticipate.

Hi,

Are you a messenger? If I'm wrong and you are more than that, well it came from my charitable side In either case you could have picked a less deceitful way to get a receipt out of me.

I occasionally read posts where someone critiques T-SQL's "limitations" on the basis that: it doesn't support input dialogs, doesn't support ORM, or why doesn't it have better syntax for processing cursors, or why can't we pass parameters to a view, ad nauseum.
You guys need to first learn the basics of SQL and T-SQL. I'd suggest you first read a book by Joe Celko on ANSI SQL programming, and then read one of Itzik Ben-Gan's T-SQL programming books from cover to cover. Also, check out Erland Sommarskog's excellent blog where he provides design patterns or explanations for some of these commonly asked T-SQL questions.

One of the most prominent "errors" I see my fellow (and former) programmers do to our TSQL code base is: They don't care for - or don't understand - set-based thinking. They tried and tries to write TSQL queries like "one-thing-at-a-time" or "loop through a number of items" or "centralize basic calculations by extensive use of user-defined-functions written in C#" - like if SQL Server was a Java or C engine.

This results in bad performance and hard-to-maintain code. And then they argue that TSQL is a bad language. It's not. It's just important for the programmer to learn what it's good at and what it's not good at, and then pick the right tool for the job at hand. To quote a fellow on the net, I once saw: You can do a lot more with TSQL than it is wise to do!
