Because you *IGNORE* the fact that people *ACTIVELY* choose
to use languages like Python, however, people *MOSTLY* use
languages like PHP and Javascript because they are *FORCED*

Of course, nature always contains "abnormalities" so i'm
sure there are few instances of people "seeking out" those
languages, but they *ARE* in the minority.

So, keeping those facts in mind, you can now understand why
people are so passionate about Python code breaks, and so
un-passionate about PHP and Javascript code breaks -- they're
already loathing in agony, so why would they seek to acerbate
