What to do with an exception that does not hurt, can't be prevented, nor meaningfully handled?


First I insure that I am catching that exception and no other. Not 'Exception' and not other generics such as ones like 'HttpException' which can wrap other types. I might need to catch something like HttpException but then drill down to the root cause to insure I have the exact one.

Then I put a comment in that specifically says it is ignored along with a reason why it is ignored.
Sometimes I log it but with the Debug(), or Trace() method so it allows someone to turn it on if needed.
