Sorry, but there are no more tags available to filter with.
I see a lot of people trash-talking the EAV (entity-attribute-value) model. If you want the full story on EAV, I recommend you read the Wikipedia entry. Basically this is the situation where instead of storing the properties of an entity in a single row, you store it as a set of name-value pairs in multiple rows.
