  Then ask questions which indicate that you want to learn.  Don't ask
questions which insinuate that we're idiots.

  It will help, but only for a very short time.  Your database is broken.

  All of this arguing could have been avoided if you just fixed the
database.  I've been doing this for about 20 years now.  I know a bit
about the subject.  You weren't attempting to educate yourself or to fix
the problem, you were attempting to blame FreeRADIUS for everything, and
tell me that I intentionally designed broken software.

  That's why you got a long response.
