in thread Use placeholders. For SECURITY!

Update: Apologies all (especially original poster tilly) if this node seemed a little hard on the Anonymous Monk. I just thought it was odd that someone would go to the trouble of reading a DBI-related post without knowing what a placeholder was, then complain about it without doing any research.
I'm the Anonymous Monk you've been corresponding with -- I just noticed your update. Can you clarify for me where it indicates that this is a DBI thread?

I found this article via an RSS link which wasn't flagged as DBI. DBI is mentioned very few times in the _comments_ and only twice (after update) in the article. The original instance of it didn't actually relate placeholders and DBI, only saying that installing the latest DBI offers more security.

Thank you tilly for adding the newbie-friendly explanation.

Sorry to have eaten up so much time with this thread, but I appreciate everyone's feedback.

    In fact, the original post didn't identify placeholders at all, something that brother tilly has added to the post. I am totally at fault for jumping on your innocent comment with hob-nailed boots. I hope you accept this apology -- I have been working with DBI almost exclusively since 1998, so placeholders are as obvious to me as the print statement.

    They have a good saying in Texas -- "Be sure your words are soft and sweet, in case you have to eat them some day." Sure wish I'd remembered that when I clicked on 'Reply'. You can bet I'll think about it in the future.
