JSON isn't inherently bad. If you use it properly, it's a great way of interchanging data between programs which may be in different languages (JavaScript or Java on the client; PHP, Perl or Python, or even compiled C, on the server).

Unfortunately, it's very easy to misuse JSON. I'm informed that some firms actually pay people to copy and paste data from e-mails rather than write code to post to some of the badly-written APIs out there .....
