Jeremy Privett's Blog:
Speaking of egotistical...
May 20, 2007 @ 14:43:06

Jeremy Privett is back with a few more thoughts on the PHP community, specifically focused on one developer - Stefan Esser.

Just reading the title of the entry through my Live Bookmarks in Firefox, I can't help but think "Thank you, Stefan, for fixing a security vulnerability in PHP and making the language that I love that much more solid and secure." - Okay, maybe that was a bit of an exaggeration, but it needs to be said that Stefan Esser does do PHP a good service through finding and reporting these kinds of vulnerabilities.

He goes on to talk about the other side of the situation, the actions of Esser that could lead to this sort of situation:

I know he's got his reasons for having issues with the developers, and if everything he's constantly ranting and raving about is indeed true, all the more reason to have issues. But do not lower yourself to their level, if that's the case. Constantly and consistently belittling PHP Developers and Zend Employees, whether on your blog or in the PHP Internals list itself, does not make you any better than them.

Jeremy suggests that these sort of actions (and reactions) aren't helping the PHP community step up to become seen as a more "Enterprise quality" language.
