please explain php to me

I can't comprehend why people use PHP for anything. From all of my (small) exposures to the language I conclude it rates pretty near "horrible". I'd love to hear any explanations. (In particular: how is it preferable to any other language once you have the <? embedding syntax? See, for example, Apache::ePerl.)

I also can't comprehend how this bug can even work. It makes so little sense, it takes me a while to understand what is even going on.
