The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

AddWithValue can cause problems where conversions may not be as expected: better to use Add and be explicit about what you are doing. And what harm the @? Just because something is optional doesn't mean you shouldn't use it - verbosity is king - it promotes clarity.
