This isn't even a straight out slam at Oracle.  My degree comes in mass
communications, and I cannot understand how anybody could shake the
perception that Oracle is afraid of open, independent investigations of
its programs.
Let's take this at the most beneficial angle that we can, and that is
that Oracle has seen too many people run their programs straight into
the ground with some rather lousy benchmarking.  If that's the case,
then the solution is not to bar each and every bench mark out there, it
is to publish the methodologies to properly tune an Oracle installation.
It is not to attempt to strangle conversation.
