Not *loving* php doesn't make you a bad man .. well, not too much :-)
Yes - it's not a perfect programming language like node, but compared to
GWBasic or Java - (</me ducks>) its shortcomings are outweighed by its low
footprint, ubiquitous install base and easy to pick up grammaticals. Thus,
like the hammer of Thor - In the right hands "the php" can be a powerful
force to do good. Just like every other language with a cult-like fan base.
So perhaps you are right - Loving what it does, not necessarily what it is.
(Love the sinner, not the sin?)
