comment Settle an Argument: String vs. Array?
Well, I read your question in more detail, and I think the interviewer is simply not knowledgeable. There's nothing you can do about that, other than find an interview at another company where the interviewer knows what they're doing.

comment Settle an Argument: String vs. Array?
I just don't think that logic applies to the question you posed. "Is a primary key exactly the same as a unique identifier?" does, but "Is a primary key essentially the same as a unique identifier?" doesn't. You can always ask clarifying questions in an interview; in fact, that's what they want you to do.

comment Settle an Argument: String vs. Array?
A primary key is a unique identifier. If the question you are asked "is a primary key the only possible way to obtain a unique identifier," then you're right; the answer is no. You have to think carefully about how the question is asked.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about tax advice.

comment Why is the yield keyword used in conjunction with return and break, and not by itself?
@Moop: By making it yield return, you don't even have to bother thinking about whether it was a syntax error or not. The chance of a collision becomes zero.

@Brandon: One of the interviewers specifically remarked to me: "You have a Masters degree. You're going to want my job a year from now."

comment Why is “tight coupling between functions and data” bad?
Your last paragraph saves the answer though. It may be the only plus side, according to you, but that's no small thing. Us so called "average programmers" actually welcome a certain amount of ceremony, certainly enough to let us know what the hell is going on.

You haven't really explained why the things you call evil are evil; you're just calling them evil. Explain why they're evil, and you might have an answer to the gentleman's question.

comment Real-World node.js
@TJonS: Most user confusion about things that happen on SE stems from a misunderstanding about what SE is all about. SE is not a forum, and folks who come here expecting it to work the same way as forums do are often surprised when it doesn't fulfill their expectations. Read up on how SE works here, especially the section devoted to asking questions. The article that pertains to this specific question is here.
