      I cringed when I talked to your recruiter last year and heard that an ecommerce platform is using mongo, btw, u guys currently hiring for directors? I can probably help you guys plan out a transition out of mongo onto something more reliable

      What’s wrong with Mongo? It’s web scale!

      People here won’t let you change, job security. We also promote internally instead of hiring external. Lots of juniors got promoted to managers. Unless peter supports you, nobody will give you the resources or helps you to get your project done. You think we can not hire some seniors to get rid of mongo? It is politics

      Man I remember when I hopped on the mongodb bandwagon way back when it had so much hype. To this day I still have no idea how the hype ever occurred. I blame it on the ROR people who think programming is about building a cat app for 10 concurrent users.

    Why are many products total bullshit like a 30TB flash drive? I feel like that isn't legal to advertise something for sale that isn't at all true. People not tech savvy will just think it's too good to be true.

      Most of them are fake. If you research on pinduoduo, same strategy
      Aug 23, 2018
    • Uber / Eng0fucksgvn
      Yeah I figured. Just curious why wish would sell fake stuff and not get in trouble for it... Or not getting a bad rep because of that.

      do you expect those low class people to care about buying fake things? They are the same people who go to dollar tree. They just need some knock off that works.

    Why is security so bad? Disable account, but can still log in. You can register account with someone’s email without confirmation.
