for public facing APIs, when a lack of a null check will result in a hard to find error later, as is often the case with constructor assignments, in my experience, I like to put null checks in.

Otherwise I'm kind of a minimalist when it comes to throwing errors. I try to delegate that to the code i call where possible. Sometimes though, I need to intervene to throw an error that makes sense, and that's when I do so.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
