comment How should we go about users "rage quitting" Stack Overflow?
I like comments where people tell the questioner, "please post your code", or other very specific suggestions about how to correct what is lacking. (Disclaimer: I have no idea how Echohonest works.) In looking at his question, I felt he actually gave all the information needed: he posted a URL which according to his understanding of the docs should have returned results, but didn't. That seems like all the info needed to frame the question. So either giving a specific suggestion for clarification or leaving a post alone (when you don't know the technology) may be the best policy.

comment Why is returning a Java object reference so much slower than returning a primitive
Aleksey: actually what was the difference between 1.1.1 Blackhole code and the 1.7.1 code?

comment Why is returning a Java object reference so much slower than returning a primitive
Thanks for the detailed explanation. The 1.7.1 version of JMH does indeed show virtually the same times. If I had started with that version, I could have avoided the whole question. As I wrote, I started by comparing different look up functions, which were not "infrastructure bound", and then when I rechecked the function I actually wrote against the previous tests, I saw this big difference. The purpose of asking the question was to find out what was the difference. (Trust me, I started trying to decompile, etc to see what was happening.)
