I found we use SQL triggers a bit too much...

I never kept track because my coding responsibilities weren't close to the database but when I did have to work there I discovered way too much business logic in our stored-procedures and triggers. So much that it made diagnosing bugs extremely difficult. One of the stored procedures was a complex query that was so deep that it could take days just to figure out what the desired result set would be ... of course it was heavily commented (NOT!). I can't stand it when someone seems to intentionally write obscure, un-maintainable code.
