    What? Who is "we"?

    I certainly do not use the old mysql_* functions. I use PDO or MySQLi.

    Why canít I use certain words like "drop" as part of my Security Question answers?
    There are certain words used by hackers to try to gain access to systems and manipulate data; therefore, the following words are restricted: "select," "delete," "update," "insert," "drop" and "null".

    This sounds very much like spam, so I'm going to close it.

    Do not use mysql_query, use PDO.

    the _query functions are for querying databases.
