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.

I don't use .net 6 .
How would I specify the message though?

Edit: In fact I don't use any features of C# 4 either. And it may be that the only features I use of C# 3 are Extension Method, Collection Initializer, and Object Initializer.
I just ran through some of my libraries, seeing which require C# 3. Most do, but one will actually compile with C# 2.

And I had actually forgotten about Collection Initializer until this week -- I used it in two places in a piece of code I wrote in 2014, to initialize a Dictionary.
Last week I wrote some code which used a Dictionary Initializer, not realizing it is a C# 6 feature, and then rewrote it as a Collection Initializer when I found out.
In the code I am working on, the Dictionary Initializer provides no benefit over the Collection Initializer.
