The trouble with triggers

It is nice when I get a confirmation for a feeling I had for a long time.
Triggers should be use with extreme care. It is a bit like AOP, very powerful but you don't let anyone play with a chainsaw.
So it is worth reading an article The Trouble with Triggers By Tom Kyte in Oracle magazine.
Note that there is a free paper version if you don't have a netbook for the toilets.
