I'm not exactly sure what there is in this article that so many people seem to be agreeing with. He does't like PHP, OK that's one thing. What else? Any critique of the language? Does he support his position at all? No, he just reiterates in different forms that he doesn't like PHP. Somehow it's like a hammer without the hammer, or a screwdriver without the handle, and we're left to just assume that's true. But, how, exactly? Are we supposed to just take the authors word for it? Perhaps it might make sense to propose a viable alternative? Or give examples of things PHP does poorly and how those could be done better? I had a job writing websites in PHP 10-12 years ago (the php3-4 era) and didn't like it then. But it got the job done. What I dislike even more though are boldy stated assertions lacking in supporting arguments.
