comment Use of NOLOCK on Microsoft SQL Server
@ThomasStringer There is no need for it, data is not being updated, there is no chance of a corrupt read. Its just additional overhead.

comment Use of NOLOCK on Microsoft SQL Server
This is a good answer but your over all tone implies people are being careless. (Though it is true it often doesn't matter). The better reason is often locking its simply not needed. If My data is updated only at night,then and all my reports run after, in batches, I would be a fool use locks and risk my reports colliding with each other. Small reference tables, are often the most accessed and least often updated, whats gonna happen if you have an extra reference ID or missing one? Nothing, because that ID is not referenced anywhere.

comment How to safeguard a REST API for only trusted mobile applications
@Supercell You can't show someone data and then stop them from sharing it. If you don't want some to have Data, you don't give it (show it) to them.
