My developers are starting to use ANSI joins in vain hope that they will 
make their apps portable
across databases. I have a positive attitude toward ANSI joins: I hate 
those verbose extensions
that make SQL statements lengthy and unreadable. What is the opinion of 
other people about ANSI joins?
What is the @#$%! allure of those things? Where did they learn it from? 
Is there any readable document
that explains  ANSI joins for dummies?
