If you could end COVID-19 by sacrificing one programming language, which one would you choose and why is it PHP?

@fribbledom i hate javascript just as much as the next person but if you think it's worse than PHP you're very mistaken


It may not be worse of a language, but it's the only one that works in a web browser. By removing JS, you make it so that the web is no longer a platform for developing applications.

PHP on someone else's websote can't hurt you.
JS on someone else's website can.

@wolf480pl @xnx38h @fribbledom Also some file formats, such as epub, use/allow JavaScript "b/c reasons".
So those file formats would become safer as well.
