    I don’t know where to post this kind of thing, so mods, please move this comment if it needs moved.

    That said, get a load of this gratuitous, awful variable name/value assignment in this otherwise useful comment on php.net:

    <TRIGGER WARNING: rapey language>


    $youTrickyLittleBitch->setMyVar('You like that?');

    (click to see the offending variable name/value combo in its natural habitat)

    </TRIGGER>

    SERIOUSLY WTF WHY IS THIS ON THE OFFICIAL PHP DOCUMENTATION SITE?

    At any rate, the guy’s e-mail address is in the header of the comment. It’s wbcarts@juno.com and I think it would be perfectly civil if a bunch of women e-mailed him to (politely) say WTF. I already have.
