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.
