Via HN. The Java-style absurdity that slowly creeping in to PHP ecosystem. History will repeat itself again. I have this feeling that PHP will one day end up like the programming language it dethroned few years back.
Rasmus (the creator of PHP) needs to step in as the Benevolent Dictator for Life (BDFL) instead of community" voting on setting the future direction of PHP. The language itself is slowly losing its identity and its PHP-way. Stop being a poor imitator of Java.
