Would you happen to know how those people programmed their backends?
Using the crummy code mentioned in the thread or code that expects RDBMS
There's lots of whacky code out there that still is used in production,
and patched endlessly whenever the next error pops up. Doesn't mean it's
a good idea to go down that path.

That said, I agree about the configuring+ranting part, but I'm not sure
to what level of strictness you can actually configure MySQL. And I'm
not interested enough to find out - Firebird suits me just fine.
