James has been recently wondering why "Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, has decided to provide helper code in both C# & VB.Net that promotes bad OOP coding". He has a whole post outlining the problem as he sees it.

He pinged me this evening on Skype to draw my attention to his post and to get my advice on how to raise awareness of this issue within the Visual Studio Product team.

I pointed him to the MSDN Product Feedback Center, as this is *the* place to make suggestions or report bugs. The product team does look at stuff posted to the feedback center. We can't be promoting bad OOP coding. This doesn't seem right

Alternatively, we can mention Scoble in a blog post and see what shakes out.
