Star is bad for 2 reasons:
You do not know what to expect from the query, and your code becomes less easy to maintain because the fog of star query does not make it easy to perform changes (e.g. refactoring).
You will fetch fields that you do not care in case migrations added new fields on the table. Unoptimized bandwidth it is for sure.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
