    MySQL is too loose and doesn't safely and reliably handle the data.

    Oh for God's sake. That video is full of shit. The default value for an character field is the empty string if not specified (what else would it be?). MySQL can either insist that you always specify a default value for a non-nullable column, or it can use a sane default. It chose the latter, which I think is just fine. If you really don't want certain values going in, then you should write triggers to enforce those kinds of constraints. No need to clutter the DB engine with needless business-logic checking.

    I also have an allergic reaction to YouTube videos that show someone typing slowly on a screen with text flashes and stupid music. Is that really the best the Postgres trolls can produce these days?
