While I really do appreciate the strengths of PHP (I use it nearly as much as Perl, since it's part of my job), I think that this post is really just here to spread FUD, and to ultimately attempt to cause a flame war. There's no need for this, IMO!
in reply to (OT troll) New Section: PHP
Anonymous monk, IMO you should be ashamed of yourself for even considering posting something as ill-considered as this excuse for a post.
Each language has it's own strengths (PHP and Perl are no different in this regard), but you should do a bit more research (and perhaps more importantly: completely understand what they were saying) before spewing what I consider to be ill-judged, poorly researched, and, ultimately, pretty much incorrect!
All this is IMO, by the by. But I can't imagine too many of the monks disagreeing with me, really.....
