comment Why aren't Object Oriented databases used as much as Relational Databases?
I agree with all your points except the last. I think its way easier for developers to mess up relational databases than object databases. Composite keys and broken relationships are very common, but it seems to me at least a little harder to mess up a class hierarchy.

Data is almost never simple, and I think you fail to explain why OODB is not more popular because after all ORM is doing very well.

comment How to make Classic ASP interesting if you are stuck with it?
"everything is coded in Classic ASP that interfaces with a custom made C++ queueing system that stores everything in AS400 systems." I'm going to have nightmares about this.

comment Why did memory-managed languages like Java, Javascript, and C# retain the `new` keyword?
That's a fairly good illustration of a bad thing that could happen, although the developer that does that would have some serious mental issues.

comment Large enterprise application - clients wish to use duplicate e-mails addresses?
Would it help if you provided the manager with 2 e-mail addresses instead of one? If the teams aren't named you can do Jim@yourcompany.com and jim.team@yourcompany.com ? You also say typically, does this mean there are multiple unpredictable variations. Is this something you can control?
