Not so polite, since in one arbitrary record into my clients db he 
placed the entry "Stupid Coder, Stupid Site".

But i'm happy that s/he cannot mess again with my databases.

I feel a bit proud because as it seems i have manages to secure it more 
tight. All i need to do was to validate user input data, so the hacker 
won't be able again to pass bogus values to specific variables that my 
script was using.

Prove me otherwise mighty one if i'm mistaken!
