I am trying to prevent an insert of a record in Table ABC when ABC.NAME = 'BAD'.  I have looked at examples of Before Insert triggers but cannot seem to find an asnwer.  

In doing so, I cannot have it raise an error.  I just do not want it to insert.  If there is a way to delete the currently being inserted record after it has been inserted that would work as well, but I would rather it not be in the table at all.

Any help would be appreciated.
