    Jonathan:

    # Strange, my experience is frequently the opposite to yours: The
    database has clearly evolved rather than being designed, but lots of
    people claim to be the designer.

    ....

    As often happens when reading something written by Jonathan I have no
    clear idea if this is intended to be funny, serious, sarcastic, or
    just flip.

    Maybe I go off course with wondering what is intended by "The database
    has clearly evolved" ...

    I don't see much "designing" things ... just hurry up and code.

    I wasn't sure either if Jonathan had misread or was being sarcastic,
    but the OP clearly has no idea who the audience is here, and that
    makes all the replies pretty entertaining. If I had posted my first
    thoughts, about one of my other google identities and the mother of
    all ishmaelites, there would be rioting in numerous countries. But
    that's a bit more flamage than I'm up for.

    Just to make myself clear:

    1.- I was joking ;-)
    2.- The point was that I've seen many databases with no proper design
    at all, just a bunch of modifications, one on top of another, shoddy
    work, etc...
    3.- I am a Darwinist ;-)

    Cheers.

    Carlos.
