plural table names?

should we follow the convention? or use singular?

Definitely ignore as many conventions as you can, and thereby make
development as hard as possible on yourself.

Ah yes, Consternation over Convention!

Really makes sense. A table has a collection of objects, plural.

I ask because I've seen debate on it and am not sure if the community
has reached a consensus. Objects named person corresponding to a
table named people seems brokenS, but I'm happy to do whatever is most
standard. Perhaps this issue is a dead horse?

The Rails convention is to use plural table names.

Why? One object is one person. The table contains data for many
objects -- that is to say, many people.

I'd say so.

Best,
