Yes, all those Ruby and Smalltalk developers are producing completely unusable garbage because they lack manifest typing. /s

I like PHP's dynamic loose scripting nature. If you want that more verbose kind of thing, there is Java, or Swift, or whatever.

PHP's current nature fulfills a unique niche in my toolkit and I like it the way it is (although I'm all for consistent naming and moving to a more dynamic OO style).
