The volumes are different, but the message is the same when I am called, there's a claim that we are dropping queries because we use bind, but the people on the phone can't explain why. This is a problem when our CTO gets the sales call, as it generates effort explaining that the company are employing scare tactics. Thanks for the volume of offlist replies with some good suggestions, too, everyone - many were very amusing.
