I wonder if you would have the same opinion to say your Operating System
environment, Apache, php, any mainstream server daemon, how about they
pull the current version for a serious bug, but dont tell anyone... 

Oracle have been quick to announce new releases of mysql, but failed to
issue a notice saying " uhoh, you better not use it" instead, putting a
small notice, where, on a fricken manual page FFS. who the hell reads
that! and they say use version "a" which does not even exist, I'd hate
to think of how many high profile sites are at risk of being screwed
over by yet MORE oracle incompetence.
No one would think  any less of them if they sent that notice, many
would be appreciative, but to "hide" such a serious issue that was
enough for them to withdraw and remove that version, is outright
despicable.
