mongoDB flame war
Allen Coin publisher kind of provocative article as a reaction to haters of the most popular noSQL engine. He recalls a blog post by Diego Basch where the author torments mongoDB for failing silently after reaching 2GB of database size. It was published almost a year after the famous Don't Use MongoDB post by former user of mongoDB. The battle continues then :)
As you can see, on DevRates mongoDB is mostly used noSQL database and the ratings are quite positive.
