I often do this to avoid the warning:

catch (Exception ex)
    if (ex != null) {}
This way, if I'm debugging, I can always examine it, even if I ignore it in the code. I'm often called out for doing this in some of my articles here.

When you pry the gun from my cold dead hands, be careful - the barrel will be very hot. - JSOP, 2013
