I certainly don't hate them since I use them quite a bit.

Of course no one provides a comment for what they are intended to match. Nor how the match works.

But I have seen quite a few that I knew to be wrong. That is concerning.

- they are cross platform (at least DFA), running in most any engine


Not sure what you mean by that. The engine that runs the regex is the only 'cross platform' part possible in that. The regex expressions themselves depend only on the engine so the expression itself has nothing to do with the platform.

Perhaps you were referring to that the simplest syntax works in different engines though. But once one uses something more complex that is not necessarily true. But at least with javascript, java and C# they to a great extent use the same syntax.
