Larger the applicaiton the slower they tend to operate

Okay, but how is this related to language benchmarks? The slowness is in the I/O, which can't be removed even if you code in Assembly. 🤔

Not to mention to geographic distance between processing, database, etc. These leading to more and more slowness.

Yes, and how does PHP overcome these problems better than Ruby?

Benchmarking is simply one of many parts of the stick.

So, if we're to analyze something objectively, we should consider all of the major yardsticks, right? If so, using just the benchmarks to denounce another language is not done. 😊

"Larger the application the slower they tend to operate" was a response to "When you're working with a small- to medium-sized app, speed is often a greater concern than freedom". I think there was a miscommunication between development speed and execution speed. That's my bad.

No language overcomes I/O latency due to network. I did not mean to insinuate one could.

"o, if we're to analyze something objectively, we should consider all of the major yardsticks, right?..." 100% yes. Benchmarks are but one tool. I did not mean to sounds like I was deriding one over the other. Simply reiterating what the tool of benchmarking stated.
