Tim Bray kicked off a big blog debate on the pros and cons of PHP (see links in his post to everyone who commented). If you’ve been around PHP for a while, there’s basically nothing new here but you might find cause for optimism in how things are being said – there’s far more informed discussion happening than you might have found even two years ago.

Haven’t got anything interesting to add accept perhaps a question. Responding to Tim, a number of people made statements to the effect of “PHP is too easy. It’s all those non-programmers that are the problem!”. So we should make PHP harder to keep the non-programmers out ?!? To me there’s something deeply wrong in that thinking.
