If someone claims that the concept of Monads (a computation model offered by Category Theory) are for side-effects, then you can be absolutely certain that the person making the claim has absolutely no idea what Monads are for. Not even the slightest. You should consider their credibility on the topic to be absolutely zero.

Comments? Does this count as the ever common Monad Tutorial? :)
