I never said I required, or tried to implement transactions. In fact I can tell you know I'm pretty sure a CMS and push based communications app are running quite fine without transactions. What I do have is:

* One language which handles both app logic and relationships, as mentioned above.

* A fidelity of types between storage and application (I'm using Mongo, so documents are stored as documents, not fields and rows)

* Apparently, some speed benefits should I need it in future, at the expense of losing the aforementioned features I don't need.

Please don't put words into my mouth:

* It's not nice.

* It's against the HN guidelines

* If your argument was of substance you wouldn't need to do it.

It saddens me this kind of nastiness gets upvotes.
