I don't understand what you're trying to say here.
... so let's just go ahead and disagree with it on principle.
Apache and Regular Expressions both place an extremely high premium on using the correct terminology and syntax. A single misplaced comma or unescaped space can bring the whole server crashing to the ground.
My issue here is with the recurring use of the terms "bug" or "buggy" as if they were synonymous with "leading to unintended results".
the prevailing wisdom of the web community
Ah, now we're getting somewhere. A statement of fact that can be investigated and thereby confirmed or refuted. All we need to do is (1) identify the "web community" and (2) locate some reliable sources for its "prevailing wisdom".
Oh, and (3) establish that "normal" in the statistical sense is equivalent to "normal" in the diagnostic sense.
