I would say: that DB-level validation is absolutely mandatory to protect the DB from data corruption. E.g. somebody my try to enter data with their own client (out of malice or just curiosity).


Unless you're in a situation where arbitrary applications can write to your database, serverside validation is sufficient. If you have a big-One company database that dozens of different applications use, well Codethulu help you (because no lesser gods can); and yeah then you probably do need to do validation in the DB.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
