Subject nulls in prepared statement & tombstones?
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2016 17:36:47 GMT
The following article makes the following statement which I am trying to

*"Cassandra’s storage engine is optimized to avoid storing unnecessary
empty columns, but when using prepared statements those parameters that are
not provided result in null values being passed to Cassandra (and thus
tombstones being stored)." *

I was wondering if someone could help explain why sending nulls as part of
a prepared statement update would result in tombstones.

Thank you,
- Henry
