To be fair, this is told from one point of view -- and even then, nothing jumps out as really that bad.
Cloneable or new constructor, Comparable or not, RMIException for non-RMI, List vs Set, are not only minor; and in some cases even arguable. Architecture, design, etc. is at a level much higher than these -- which seems just like details that can be debated at the code review.
Furthermore, it is actually very good considering that the lead is new to Java.

Reddit and Digg are great examples of vote gaming and abuse--I don't really think those are strong arguments for voting. Stack Overflow is more heavily moderated than either Reddit or Digg.
