IMO, it's a nice read. Personally, I agree with many of points in this 

Of course regex is important and very useful. But it has its own 
advantages and disadvantages, like everything else. There are situations 
or conditions where some programmers prefer to use his own custom but 
readable and maintainable parsing code over regex cryptic syntax.
