Paul on IRC reminds me that this might have been target at me, funny :)

The blog posts are for background which is generally lacking as these benchmarks keep coming
up. I did point out why this is a bad scenario for CouchDB and offered an explanation of better
scenarios, but I can't go and define your scenario because, well, it's yours. That is the
whole point of my stupid benchmarks are stupid argument.

I also did offer more information if requested and I am happy to go into the details of why
CouchDB performs better under concurrent load if requested. If you are requesting that, can
you formulate a question? :)

Thanks for your feedback.
