Re: it's so easy

MySQL disallowing updates or deletes without a where clause is all very well...

But imagine trying to type:

DELETE FROM table WHERE ID >= 1234;

And mishitting the "equals" key to get the key on the left. Hey presto:

DELETE FROM table WHERE ID >- 1234;

That's a whole different clusterf*ck...
