comment Scala or Clojure Functional Programming best practices
It seems unusual that you consider persistence to be "at the end". I believe the "trapping DB syncs, possible scalability bottlenecks etc." are a problem precisely because they are in the middle of things, rather than the end.

comment Do non-pure interpreters still make the guarantees of functional programming?
"the destructiveness of functional programming reveals itself by the inability to revisit all past states of computation and inspect every object that was ever created." No, you could easily do this, given enough memory and processing power. You could just as easily do it in an imperative language: just save a snapshot of the stack before every instruction.

comment Space complexity of Iterative Deepening DFS
It feels rather self-serving to accept an answer that says I am right and wikipedia is wrong, but oh well. ;) Thanks for the response to my santiy-check.

comment What should I understand before I try to understand functional programming?
+1 for "unlearn". Very true, both in natural as well as programming languages.
