From the evidence, it seems that there has been some (lacking, insufficient and usually causing damage, but some) attention given to cross cutting concerns:
That is why I was shocked to read method after method that read like this:
I mean, did at no point someone stand up and said: “My Ctrl+C / Ctrl+V keys just fell off, we might need to think about a better way of doing this"?
I mean, cross cutting concerns didn’t raise the question of error handling?
I mean, seriously, you want to tell me that this type of code is an Official Guidance from Microsoft?
