Use whatever you feel comfortable with for the job at hand.

I had to write two filters last week, one to convert some C declarations
to XML and another to convert the XML to code. I wrote the former in C++
because I had the tools to parse C declarations in my library and I wrote
the latter in PHP because of its simple XML and xpath handling.

The only filter you had to deal with last week was the oil filter in your
car dude. Don't try to use the fact that this guy is a dimwit to progress
your own status. When you even know what a fuckin filter is then I will
perhaps begin to entertain you dude .

  Then perhaps you could explain to us what a filter is and why what he
did does not qualify as such.
