re: I'm feeling bad about the database I tossed up last week where all the ID columns are called ID rather than <tablenameID now... 😳
 

I actually prefer that instead of tablenameID. I typically don't like alliteration in my SQL queries or code function calls. I'd much rather invoke select * from users where id = ? instead of select * from users where userid=?

I find the first one more readable and understandable as well.
