I'm just wondering what everyone's thoughts on the best web based scripting (server side scripting) language is.

My personal opinion is that they all have their pro's and con's. I'll give you one thought on the subject though - I hate the ability to not declare variables. In ASP I always get problems when I make a variable by accident by spelling it wrong then forget to destroy it later and it causes the server to lag when it happens XXX number of times. Also I highly dislike not having different types of variables to use (the fact that they all start as objects then just hold different types of info). Argh!

Anyways, just wondering on the rest of the communities thoughs on this matter.
