Today's xkcd seems apropos: http://xkcd.com/438/

It seems to me that if a PHP developer sees the Haskell community as a 
resource for advice on programming language implementation, we should 
take this as a compliment to the Haskell community.  Repaying that 
compliment with "your language sucks rocks" strikes me as unwise.

I'm familiar with a lot of arguments for why PHP is a poorly-designed 
language, and have found them sufficiently persuasive that I haven't 
bothered to learn PHP.  But I don't see any point to repeating those 
arguments on this list.
