comment How to perform deferred tasks in backend
I don't think it's clear what your problem actually is. If you only consider them to have gold status if expiration Date>= now then there is no moment you need to "remove" it. So what exactly is the problem that remains?

Whenever you check the status check the expiration date too?

comment Why is reading from memory not a side-effect but reading from a file is?
If someone wanted to implement a version of Haskell that did its own memory paging but kept the same public semantics then it would be side effect free (technically the files would have last access time modified and such, but that would not be exposed to the programmer directly) for the purpose of writing programs. The implementation of pure functional languages may, and do, have side effects. If as a programmer you are accessing a file at the level of the program itself you are dealing with a concept, files, that conceptually includes side effects.

comment Are Git branches, in fact, “homeomorphic endofunctors mapping submanifolds of a Hilbert space”?
I've always assumed that the author of the joke did get the monad joke but was purposely descending in to gibberish as a parody. One of those things that starts out plausible and becomes steadily less so until only at the end can you be sure its gibberish. It seems uncharitable to conclude he didn't get the monad joke.
