Neither do we need to bury our heads in the sand and not know what's
happening in the world at large around us.  I appreciated the links to
the Oracle docs.  I can't see how a link to oracle documentation that
is open and requires no login can be an issue of copyright violation.
I might see some issue of "poisoning the well" as regards patented
methods getting into pgsql, but that's about it.  As for advertising,
I doubt there's anyone on this list that just decided to switch to
Oracle over just those links.

What I would appreciate as regards Oracle's flashback technology would
have been a link to a well written review showing the warts as well as
the beauty.  I've found that Oracle stuff sounds good on paper, and
turns into a giant maintenance nightmare upon deployment.  But that's
just what I've seen looking over Oracle DBA shoulders in the past.
