Yeah, I've heard this one already but I think it's just an objection not to use it. Other typical objections I've heard are "it's a young language/framework," "there aren't enough people who know Ruby," and "it's harder to deploy that a PHP script." They're just objections, not particularly well informed or balanced.

It's also important to remember that in a lot of circles Ruby has a
stigma of being unscalable.  The sentiment mostly stems from folks
confusing scalability with performance, but some stigmas die hard.
After all, there are people who still think that Java is slow.
