Just wanted to chime in another anti-PHP voice. I used to think like "Shippou" - it's just a tool, it's the programmer's fault if he uses it wrong. But after many years of coding I realized that PHP really IS that bad, and the "it's programmer's fault" really doesn't fly.

"Smart" tools are designed exactly to prevent the user from repeatedly shooting themselves in the foot. Good tools don't have as many safeguards, but also don't encourage bad practices either. And then there's PHP, the bad tool, that gives you enough rope to hang yourself with while constantly nudging you saying "DO IT, DO IT, COME ON, PROVE YOU'RE A MAN!"

@tstrimple. Give up man, it's clear he doesn't have a clue what he's talking about.


What can I say... I'm easily trolled.

I remember when I wanted to get into Web Programming (I still will soon, when I get the time to pull away from doing some programming projects I am working on). I immediately looked into PHP because I always heard about it and saw it everywhere at that time (I don't see it nearly as much anymore). Lets just say this: I didn't stay long. It didn't even take a beginner into web programming for me to see PHP felt broken and like a terrible language.
