I guess it's not, indeed.

What's wrong with foo/bar examples though?

It's a pet peeve of mine. Once I see a tutorial with foo/bar as variables / bindings, I stop reading

Doesn't that mean you stop reading 99% of all tutorials after the first example?

Nothing wrong with the foo/bar examples. The article is about the Regex patterns, not whether or not we're passing in lorem ipsum text.

Great post Rémy. 👍
