A solid, real question of mine w/ 18 up votes, 4 stars was removed. I want to know why. It was posted on September 7, 2010 and closed on September 11, 2012, a full two years later.
They say it was not a constructive question, but 18 people and myself think it is. I am a PHP veteran and even I was not sure of the differences.
I want to know why it was closed. They say it's not a "constructive" question. Well, here it is:

Does Zend have an accepted "standard" on which one to use?
I personally greatly dislike seeing

else iflike every other language, right? But I just need to know if they're synonymous and the PHP manual isn't the easiest to search.
