That every language has problems does not mean that the problems in languages are equivalent to each other or have the same number or severity of them.

Most problems in sane languages are either something small that was overlooked or is a consequence of having to make tradeoffs. The vast majority of PHP's problems are from pure ignorance and lack of any design. It doesn't even rise to the level of poor design because that implies that there is a design to it.
