Thanks for sharing the links that you did. I got to read the amazing "PHP: a fractal of bad design" and saw the people who build PHP itself. I am a MERN stack developer and I started to explore PHP and WordPress theme development.

Ooh boy, the ecosystem, design principle in PHP and WordPress are just so bad! They are extremely bad. I'm not saying this because I have anything against PHP, I willingly came to learn it with an open mind and I will keep studying it.

But as a PHP developer now, I must say, PHP is a badly designed language and things like WordPress complement bad design further.
