comment How to address, “Is anyone even using this feature?” questions
On the topic of PHP deprecations, there are still people out there today learning the language and relying on long-deprecated or long-insecure methods. No amount of telling them 'X is deprecated, and will be removed, use Y instead' ever sinks in. At some point you just have to remove it.

+1 to not removing the comments if they are necessary to understanding the code.

comment Overcoming slow problem solving due to increased knowledge of what might go wrong
reminds me of 'good, fast, cheap, pick two' - when you knew less you were sacrificing on the 'good', and now that you know more, you're sacrificing on the 'fast'.

comment Which HTTP status codes are really OK?
Sounds like a very vague concept to me. How should you know when the site fails, more than the developers do? It's almost like you would need to say set up testing for all the different scenarios of the app, which sounds an awful lot like the automated testing the developers of the site should be doing.

comment Which past version of Netbeans IDE that has lightness almost equal or better than Eclipse Indigo?
The IDE you choose has nothing to do with the code, you can use any project in any IDE.

Amazon and Google are fairly similar in terms of design... perhaps not the Google homepage, but the rest, yes.

Do you have an example of something that isn't "plain"?
