in thread modern ways of doing web services

I appreciate the simplification and see you're passionate about it.

I only add: blaming crummy REST implementations on REST instead of the dev is a bit like blaming obesity on good food and exercise. REST does, like test driven development and other "cost up front" approaches, take discipline. I think it's worth it. I think the benefits cascade. I think working with HTTP instead of at right angles of convenience would have got web development as a whole further faster.

    Thank you for your follow up.

    FWIW - I will gladly take REST over pretty much anything that isn't "always JSON POST over HTTPS." Connecting to REST is very easy compared to most other protocols.
