That people keep referring to the 'Fractal of bad Design' article which is from 2012 (!!) is tiresome.
Like 7 years of evolution doesn't deserve a new look? Sigh.
A few things are fixed, many problems added to that list. So the bottom line is his huge list of mind-melting problems is bigger today than in 2012.
The fact that PHP 5 is still used for new monstrosities also make the Fractal article relevant today.
So no it does not.
I fail to see how it's the fault of the language... that people & irresponsible hosting companies keep using the old versions.
It makes the article relevant.
