I've been reading this agog - really, how old are we here? But I have to say
that Bob's signature was absolutely spot on. It even caught me out until I
realised its purpose. Case in point.
I have to wonder how this conversation will look in the various archives
when a future PHP coder goes looking for a nice, friendly place to seek
knowledge and guidance.
PS: I also have to wonder how the attitude of "I don't like that rule, so I
didn't follow it" (not an exact quote) will go over when presented to a
PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/)
