More on MySQL and security

In a recent Q&A, you stated in no uncertain terms that MySQL shouldn't be used in any situation requiring data security. Could you elaborate? What is it about MySQL that brings you to this conclusion?

As I related above, I have LOTS of background and reasons why not to use it based upon actually using the product in comparison to other database platforms as well as dealing with it at several clients. I will NOT use MySQL, nor will I recommend its use. However, I'm going to decline elaborating simply because the last time I said something, I received over 1400 e-mails telling me in polite and not-so-polite language just how uneducated, uninformed, and inaccurate that point of view is. I refuse to deal with the massive politics that surround MySQL as well as Linux.
