This is a rebuttal post to comments posted Private Methods Considered Harmful
I do not wholeheartedly believe that private methods are evil, or that they were mistakenly included in the PHP language by the core development team. Nor do I believe that there are only two true options when it comes to devising visibility requirements: public and protected. There is a place for private methods, in PHP development and elsewhere.
