If it really is so bad, why have so many developers- in particularly web
> developers- clasped it to their bosom?
For two main reasons:
1. It is (used to be) fast compared to other DB's while still handling
fairly large amounts of data.
2. Data integrity was not important to them (or they wanted to do all their
data checking on the web interface side by hand and considered it as
overkill or an unneeded resource drag on the DB side).

I have heard enough horror stories of data corruption in mySQL to agree
that it is in many ways still a toy DB and not a real RDBMS. However, when
data integrity is not that important and DB speed is a bigger priority, it
still has a role IMHO... at least it is a better choice than using text
files for storing your data.
