PHP considered dangerous

[ #31911 ]

Yes, in the Perl community we have sometimes some troubles.

I've had people complain that p5p won't listen to them. I've seen flame fests and legal threats and rants and the odd fork.

But I just read this.

And so if I ever hear anyone bitch again in a way that isn't constructive, I shall personally stab them in the face.

    Whenever I see the phrase "Be glad (that) $foo", I usually substitute it with "What can we do to make sure that $foo?"

    Therefore, I applaud your face-stabbing initiative. I'd prefer that you give the person a chance to redeem themselves beforehand, though. :)

      * Encouraging people to use modules rather than hand coding potentially broken solutions.

      * DBI placeholders

      * Tainting

      * Immediate and decisive responses to emerging exploits or potential security issues.

      * A very strong testing culture.

      We sometimes lack in other area
