Because when I read technology blogs, I stagger across elitist comments like this.
I happen to need abstractions, because I do not plan to re-write the MySQL connector for every app I build.
This blog has had the shortest stay on my watchlist — about 3 minutes.
Got Flamed in the trackbacks to this post, but my opinion still stands. I am one of the PHP Web Grunts mentioned in some of the previous posts. I write PHP for my purposes, not for the ages. I do what I have to to get it done, with some eye to making sure that it is still functional and useful.
Apologies to the author of the post that started this post if this was taken as a personal attack: I don’t know the history that lead to the breakdown of your project. I was simply commenting on what I saw as a stright down the nose look at those of us who just need to get stuff done.
