Let's not conflate "hating" (which is always pointless) with pointing out flaws in a design.

"Mongo sucks f*cking balls" is hating it. "Mongo silently does not store data in some situations" is pointing out a flaw.

It is easy to dismiss valid criticism as hate. It is also unfortunately true that some topics degenerate to flamewars on HN. Why Mongo is such catalyst is a phenomenon in itself. One that I find fascinating.
