Honestly, I'd be more worried about it if the code I was borrowing would survive code review as it is (it wouldn't)
What's funniest about it is that they use all these really terrible names for things, and then they bother to put SuppressMessageAttribute declarations everywhere to shut up Code Analysis that whines about all the terrible things they're doing.
I mean, they're aware enough to realize it's terrible, but they refuse to fix it. =)
I just don't know with this code. Not my circus, not my monkeys.

I once got offered a job as a property developer (construction) because my job title states that I'm a Software Developer. Worst of all was that the recruiter could not understand why I couldn't give her a list of the shopping malls I've built in my career (which was 2 years experience at the time).
That reminds me... In the 1990, I was a Comp.Sci. college lecturer. There had been a sudden drop in the demand for software people, so our students didn't always find a job after graduation. One of them was hired by a publishing house for typing into the computer the complete works of the Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. He got the job because he, as a programmer, knew how to use a keybard.
Then comes the crazy part of the story - unrelated to LinkedIn and recruiting, but it deserves to be told:
I was suprised that the job was offered at all. This company had published a new Ibsen Complete only a few years back, which certainly must have been typeset by computer, right? Yes, right. That printing was sold out, and they were going to make a new one. Then they have the typesetting files in their computers, don't they? Well ... This publishing house went directly from lead type to computer typesetting, replacing the technology, but retaining the work procedures with as little change as possible. In the age of lead type, once a printing had been made, the lead was recycled for the next book to be printed. The last (now sold out) Ibsen printing had certainly been made by a computer typesetting system, with the text stored on floppy discs. Once the printing was done, the floppy disks had been recycled, used for their next book. The publishing house guys thought of that as the normal thing to do; in the lead age, you always had to do the typesetting again to make a new printing of an old book.
My former student was happy with getting some income while searching for a permanent job, but shook his head as much as I did.
