The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

In particular, how come Oracle can run online forums without pro-active moderation, but SAP can't?

Question: I want to know if my posts and replies here will be immediately available for others to view, or will they be subject to a delay caused by the need for a "moderator" to approve my submission.

Answer: All posts are immediately available to all folks who are logged into this forum.

@Jason, while I certainly see your point, cross-posting here gives us the choice to comment/vote on these issues without having to create/use a SCN login. IMHO, that's an advantage, at least currently...

(Though comments may more appropriate on real questions, not rants, I see.)

@Volker... yes, indeed. This question should have been posted as an "announcement" rather than a question. The intent was to inform the community here, of a discussion taking place over there (SCN). Jason's reply, and the 4 upvotes on that reply, indicate that mistakes shall not be tolerated... a good thing! :)

Sadly, the discussion over there has taken a turn for the [ahem] vigorous. The indefensible is being defended, the crowd has been fired upon and dispersed.

A close reading of several related discussions over there indicate deep philosophical differences between this site and SCN... in particular, discussions (what we call Q&A) are held in low regard when compared with blog posts and articles on SCN.

I'm not sure whether it's a religious or a political discussion now, or a combination of both, but I will leave that to others... I just wanna help customers get answers to technical questions. That can be done here, at least for now.
