PHP in Action:
How harmful is "harmful"?
December 30, 2008 @ 10:22:47

In reference to some comments made on the previous post ("Comments Considered Harmful") to the PHP in Action blog, there's a new post explaining and responding to some of the things said by visitors.

Conflict is not a bad thing. That is, if it leads eventually towards clarity and understanding rather than confusion and misunderstanding. [...] A debate about a technical matter may be conducted in parallel with an altercation that addresses the relationship between the participants. This is confusing in itself. Keeping these discussion apart will help maintain clarity.

Using this tact, he responds to the criticism made on the previous post, specifically one that points to this article as to why "considered harmful" articles should only be seen as fodder for argument and should be "considered harmful" themselves.
