Too harsh on them

Two important points I'd like to make (based on the relevant Redit(?) thread):

1) The Onion developers weren't seriously considering any PHP CMS for the new site version, because of their general dislike of the language.

2) In 4.x it was much hard to get a site like the Onion working 100% without hacking core. If it was D6 or D7 (and to a lesser extent D5) then it would be inexcusable, but I suspect they didn't have much choice in D4.
