View as plain text  
If you're loocking for consurrent inserts/deletes, use innodb (row level
locking). This will be better than myisam.

The text column can be created in aother table and stay referenced via a FK.

This will ceratinly be faster since insert or delete on myisam implies a LOCK
table implicit mecanism.
