In Topic: Single quote and double quotes difference ?

17 September 2014 - 08:59 PM

In that example, there is no difference.

http://php.net/manua...ypes.string.php for reference on the difference between single vs. double quotes.

Yep, that is exactly my job. Or was, so take it for what it's worth. But I know exactly what I'm talking about when I'm pointing out that same behavior in you. You're a really smart guy and bring a lot of good knowledge and best practices to the table. But that's not a free pass to be an asshat to people. "Dr. House" types generally don't stick around and make real friends, despite what the TV shows portray. If you want to be more welcomed in the community, phase out the "you suck" vibe. You seem to have no issues being public about that, so I have no issues being public with this.

To be clear, what requinix is really saying is you need to stop being so negative. 99% of your posts involve saying someone or something is "stupid" (pick a better negative word if you like).  Flip a coin: heads you explain why, tails you just bitch.

I don't hate you. I just don't like your attitude about jQuery. More importantly, I don't like how that attitude manifests in your posts, how you look down on people who use it or even mention it.

You talk about all these not-so-smart people who call themselves programmers but can't write a line of javascript because they are wasting their time with jQuery, and I don't necessarily disagree with you, but running around pointing this out and how you aren't one of those not-so-smart people doesn't help the situation. All it does is make you sound like a pretentious, elitist asshat.

You weren't really interested in helping OP out. All you really wanted to do was get on your soapbox and wag your finger at OP about jQuery, and then you threw out a few half-hearted words pointing vaguely in the right direction to try to justify it. This makes you look like a pretentious, elitist asshat offering up no actual solution.

If you are truly here to help and stick to your (misguided) anti-jQuery principles, then help end this pandemic of stupidity by posting a pure js solution and explaining to the OP how it works and why it is a better solution. Otherwise, don't post at all, because as Dr. House taught us, people only tolerate pretentious, elitist asshats if they also provide actual solutions.

Hey I was a js "purist" for many years too, I know all about it. And I still advocate learning vanilla before frameworks. But I now also advocate learning them and using them, as well.
