Whatever you personally think of PHP, I'm not charmed with you making 
allegations on a public forum that "many" people were "flamed to crisp" by 
the team I am a member of, but then fail to support that statement when asked 
where you base it on. If you want to make statements that put a team in a bad 
light in a public forum you'll have to be prepared to back them up.

It seems to boil down to "trust me, I once heard somewhere that a person was 
flamed by a security team member".

I think it's evident that I'm not charmed by you postulating that "many" 
people were "flamed" by that team, suggesting structural issues, without 
presenting a piece of material on that. I believe that only helps to set a 
negative atmosphere around that team.
