    Unanswered: one guestbook table or many? (was "MySQL question")

    Howdy,

    You know those sites that offer things like remote guest books and remote chat boxes etc that you can include on your site?
    Well, my question is, say for the guest book part.
    Would you have one table with ALL the comments and names and everything? Because you could have millions of comments in that table, selecting from there would be pretty slow right?
    Or, would you have one table for each site's guest book comments?
    Because that would end up having a lot of tables.
    Or maybe you have one table, but you have all the comments in one row, and keep adding onto it?
    Or, is there a fourth way to do this?


    I've always wondered about this.


    Thanks,
    Jason
