> extremes are equally dangerous Again, they're not *equally* dangerous. Some extremes are more dangerous than others.

I think what Alexander meant is that extremes are equally dangerous no matter whether you don't use best practices at all, or use them too much without the need (e.g., code/logic complexity may increase instead of being reduced because of choosing a wrong tactic/approach). Alexander, correct me if I'm wrong.

Getters. Apart from that I'm with you.

Comment on On Preferring Spaces Over Tabs in PHP by Bo Qu

As one with bad eyes, being able to adjust the size of indentation at will is a godsend. I can do this with tabs, but when you use spaces, I lose that ability. Everyone is all gung-ho about making websites accessible to the blind (no one cares about the deaf, stupid videos without captions), but screw the programmers, I guess. I'm not blind, but being able to have bigger indents helps me a lot. It's a nightmare when the rest of my team insists on using 2 spaces.

I don't think both are "equally" bad. I'd rather see a novice attempting to apply them, fanatically or otherwise, than not attempting to apply them.

In order to use best practice efficiently you should understand why it suggests doing something, understand trade-offs and be ready to take one of best practices as a base and modify it to suit your needs. The problem with novices is not having enough experience to truly understand what's behind best practices and thus either not using them of using them fanatically (both are equally bad).
