google: "mysql replication horror story"
Presumably they would be so widely known that showing up in the first 10 hits on google is a reasonable test.
Hmm - which of those non-stories was the 'many' that you had in mind?

Please do not weasel out of pointing out information that could be beneficial to those of us attempting to make a balanced consideration between the two.
If you have any stories you can point to -- let us know; I would appreciate the information. It would help to inform my opinion about MySQL and the merits (or otherwise) of it's replication.
Otherwise your comment just serves to inform my opinion about hyperbole on the Internet and its continuing rise.

this was without any system crashes
no, I don't know of Internet links that document this.
my prior post was intended to make the point that doing a google search for "mysql replication horror story" and not finding a real one in the first ten hits has very little, if anything to do with the quality or lack of quality of mysql (or postgres) replication.
I never like to hear of anyone loosing their data, but to then make the claim that if the replication tool was built-in instead of a seperate project it would not have happened, and that mysql 'just works' as an example of this always being true is just not a valid chain of logic.

"Results 1-10 of about 122,000 for mysql replication broken (0.60 seconds)"
Then again, what with mysql being a horrible toy, clustering being broken is hardly a suprise.
