This pisses me off so much. Relational theory is the foundation to the majority of software in existence today that persists anything. Relational databases are rock solid, and offer SO many things directly out-of-the-box for FREE. NoSQL has it's place in real-time and schema-less data, but even relational databases can be coerced to perform there.
Just because is popular doesnt mean is a good thing, we should evolve and learn from our mistakes.
And nothing is free, SQL has many downsides but we are tough to live with them and we think that "is natural".
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
