comment Psychology behind $0.99 for paid apps, but $1.00 for donation apps?
I would posit that anyone who donates on a regular basis could self-validate this assertion - it resonates with me on a deep level. We may have to look past UX to fundraising psychology for research to support it. I would enjoy digging a bit deeper also, but I'm on vacation without a reliable internet connection.

comment Is “Tweet to Unlock a Free Download” a dark pattern?
Thanks for the clarification of the "Dark Pattern" definition. Maybe we should call these patterns "Fart Patterns": people do it, it stinks, but there's no real longterm harmful consequences.

comment Should users be forced into a responsive design (without the ability to opt out)?
Nice concept. I like it - thanks for sharing it. We're actually proceeding with a solution that bases responsiveness off of a .responsive class and then remove the class if a user wants to see "desktop" view and vice-versa... seemed like a bit less latency than loading stylesheets.

comment Is it true that “the only 'intuitive' interface is the nipple”?
Your answer would have 100+ votes if there were more mothers on here. My wife wants to create a ux.se account just to vote this one up.

comment Is implementing dark patterns unethical?
Are our responsibilities limited to what the law requires of us? If we are legally allowed to do something, does that mean we ought to? If there is no relevant law to speak of with respect to a "What should I do?" problem we're facing, does that mean that anything goes? No. No. No. Great article in BusinessWeek tackling laws vs ethics goo.gl/z0cpW

Mahershalalhashbaz... there's some Sunday School trivia - it's the longest word in the Bible.
