Here, the archives are full of list regulars being told directly by the
likes of Roy and Mark dozens of times that we're wrong. Gradually,
this group has become _the_ place to get schooled on REST as intended
by Fielding. There, I don't see many answers from those who've put
their knowledge to the test, here. What I do see are attempts to define
REST in terms of implementation rather than style, i.e. Wikipedia REST,
not Fielding REST.
So pick the place that best suits your needs -- there if you want
implementation, here if you want architecture; there is a difference,
which comes down to the proportion of answers from those who've been
"vetted" by Roy (and Mark, and others) over the years, and understand
REST as an architectural style as opposed to implementation guidelines.
Just my two cents.
