Rhino Mocks 3.5 Design DecisionsTo be strict or not?

time to read 1 min | 51 words

Here is an interesting problem. What should this piece of code do?

var stubSmsSender = MockRepository.GenerateStub<ISmsSender>();
// test code

Right now this is a no-op.

But since stubs are explicitly not mocks, they shouldn't be verified. Should I throw here? For something which is a test design decision?
