    I'd agree with that.

    I got out of the fast & loose PHP thing a year or so ago and I'm now OOP full time.

    A bit of discipline has enormous cost benefits over the lifetime of a project...

    With the web, technically it is just text files, very easy (well, unless you use AJAX).

    But from your list: maintability (so you can add things without redoing the whole interface), integration (making your tools feel unified, cohesion), easy to deploy (different screen resolutions, browsers etc), usability / well tested (getting users in a group and watching them use your software, QA etc) .... etc ...

    Seems like a silly thing to say. The only reason any of the ranting is known is just because the process is completely open and in the public. So there is friction and we can see it plainly and we can attatch particpants names to it. My earlier comment suggested that we wouldn't be helping by fanning those flames, especially on a distant forum travelled by many folks who don't follow the internals list closely enough to appreciate the process.

    At least no one is throwing chairs or plotting to undermine and destroy others.

    Well when you put it like that, that seems fair enough.

    Just as well that I'm not involved, coz I'd be the one throwing chairs .. and people...
