I love those declarations.

Surely it's not really public synonyms but granting unnecessary privileges on 
those objects to public.

Is it SOX compliant to have a post release script to remove all public synonyms 
and replace them with private synonyms for all users?

It's been declared that public synonyms are bad for any SOX databases where I 
work.  That means that the DBA's have to comb through any code that needs to be 
promoted for the forbidden words 'create public synonym'.  It really sucks when 
a 3rd party application relies heavily on them.  We have to constantly push 
code back to them for revision.

I use them all the time.  Standard practice here.  I used to use public 
synonyms but now use private syns.  The schema who owns the objects creates 
private syns for the users who need them.

Kind of out of left field here but I was curious about how many people
here use Synonyms and the types of synonyms they are normally using,
i.e; table/view/column?
