A thousand apologies, the "possibly just for Pradeep, goto", was a meant  
as a light joke not to be taken personally. Goto was the original issue  
with Basic.

You hit the nail squarely on the head when you say "The *users* of PHP  
tend to get wired in weird ways after using it". So do the users of python  
or any other language, in their own way. You can choose not to like Php,  
but there are a lot of good programmers who do use it productively.

The fact is that you've obviously invested some amount of time working  
with various python frameworks, which make certain choices obvious to you.  
The author of the article obviously wasn't able to do that, Drupal seems  
like a sensible decision to have made. I'd agree the post is almost  
certainly not objective, but then most comparisons are that way, it's  
something we have to live with.

Ps. I am talking from my own perspective, if I was asked to create a  
website backed by a database, I'd chose something based on Php simply  
because that's what I have some recent experience working with, so I spend  
less time wasted trying to learn the tools.
