Long story made short, was curious about the open source Digg clone… Downloaded Plugg.
There was a small bug in DB permissions that was causing it not to install correctly, so I cracked open the source. OMG! I’ve been dealing with OO PHP for long enough that what I found reminded me why I do have standards over the code that is produced.
It’s not just bad, it’s..it’s…… PHP is clearly the new Basic.
