 As for prepared statements, I'm no authority on them, but from what
 I've read they are not going to be something I'll be practicing
 anytime soon.

Aside from Stuart's comments about slowness, what else have you read
that makes you discount the use of prepared statements? The PDO class
emphasizes that you're safe from SQL injection exploits, which seems a
big plus.



As I said, I'm no authority. However as I have read, prepared statements are for a limited set of instructions in MySQL. They can't be used for everything. Why should I learn one way to do something that isn't universal in the language?

Additionally, I think the way I sanitize data is sufficient AND I understand it. *My* learning curve may introduce security problems that I am not willing to risk, at this moment. As I said, I have more than enough on my plate to digest -- including learning non-prepared statements in MySQL.
