That's awesome. Unless you're testing 50 different JSON payloads through a JSON-consuming service and they all only differ by whether or not content is present -- or because you want other testers to have some idea what the hell you're doing. And you don't have a week to code up a custom JSON generator that will integrate with your existing framework. I'm sure the busy developers will be happy to integrate a few more layers of parsing into the AUT just for me.

This is sadly all too typical -- another myopic developer deciding they know everything anyone should ever have to do, and making obstructive decisions as a result of their self-proclaimed omnipotence. 

It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the corner-cutting coders who don't feel that they should have to abide by defined formats or structures and are jumping in the deep end of the JSON pool... bringing the rest of us along for the drown.
 
Comments in JSON

I removed comments from JSON because I saw people were using them to hold parsing directives, a practice which would have destroyed interoperability. I know that the lack of comments makes some people sad, but it shouldn't.

Suppose you are using JSON to keep configuration files, which you would like to annotate. Go ahead and insert all the comments you like. Then pipe it through JSMin before handing it to your JSON parser.

Hey Niantic. Your portal approval, removal, and update process is a joke. Doesn't anyone at your parent company care about getting anything right anymore?

I like to imagine that beta == no consistency, whether it's gameplay or internal s.o.p.; they're still trying to figure out the best way to do things..
