comment When to use functions vs methods?
Java doesn't have standalone functions at all. Are you talking about static methods?

comment Why languages that compile to C/C++ generate unreadable, cryptic code?
"Not that it is an effort" - how do you know that? Are you familiar with the internals of the compiler that's generating that intermediate C code? Chance are its internal representations have nothing to do with what human-writen code looks like.

comment How do I set up pairing email addresses?
Can't your mail thingy do an "intelligent" processing of the email address? Doesn't sound to outlandish to do the redirects with a single rule (even if it calls out to an external script or something).

comment Reference vs dereference pointers in arguments C++/C
The fact that you can't pass a null (no object) with a reference parameter can be a reason to use a pointer instead. Passing ownership of something also requires pointers. Interactions/interfaces with C can't use references. And the semantics, as I said, are different. As for copy vs pointer/reference - it depends. You need to benchmark. Optimizers have an easier time when you pass values around.

comment Is there a correlation between the scale of the project and the strictness of the language?
There's probably something to be said about lifecycle: software that starts in your first category can evolve into the others, "dragging" the language with it.
