says it is very bad article with wrong and very outdated statements.

"I wish bloggers would stop quoting that fractal article. At least 50%
of what's written in there is totally wrong/false. Other information
is terribly out of date. And even more information is merely
half-truths and lack of understanding of the language. The article
author clearly scanned through PHP bashing articles and took material
from them verbatim; mistakes and all.

I'm not going to argue that PHP is a great language, but the article
is a complete disservice to anyone who has bothered to read it. I'm
disappointed, but not surprised, that Jeff Atwood linked to it."
