Subject Re: is this a bug?

Hi Xiaolei,

By definition:

Write.ONE: Ensure that the write has been written to at least 1 node's
commit log and memory table before responding to the client.

So it is not a bug as long as the data gets to A. If you want to be
sure data gets to B and/or C, use Write.QUORUM or Write.ALL (and large
enough replication factor).

I get puzzled.  Is it possible that the data may still be lost even if the insertion call
