umm, what the hell? It's not elitism. It has nothing to do with being
elite or better. It has to do with picking languages based on their
security history and development style. Php has a bad security history
and a kinda scary development style. And I have no idea why you'd think
I'd suggest anything EVER be written in java.

I'll gladly back the hell away from this conversation as you appear to
have gone 'round the twist.
