Is there any compelling reason why you would ever want to stick Thumbnails or Avatars into MySQL??

Someone told me this is better and more secure, but most of what I have ever heard says, "Stick Data in a Database, and Files on a File-System!!"

If I had to do this for 10,000 or 100,000 users, I think it could cause a real bottle-neck...

Thoughts?

Sincerely,


Debbie
