If they are "improving" so much the languages, freeing them of
"unnecessary" things and syntax, why don't they remove the need of
semicolons at the end of every line and all those braces from C#.

They say they changed some features of VB to make it more like C for the
good of VB, so why don't they do also this to C# and change some ugly
features making it more readable as VB is?

Hi Scott, you must have right wing political sympathies because you have
used a favourite right wing method of choosing or inventing an irrelevant
point and then defending it to the exclusion of any points raised by their

I was replying to a direct question posted by the previous writer to a
general point. There is no mechanism in newsgroups to have a separate
conversation within a thread so all sorts of thing may crop up in a thread
which are not exactly germane to the original post, strangely your post had
nothing to say about the use of "Call" in any language so you are just as
guilty as myself.

To prevent myself from committing the same perceived offence, perhaps we
should consider the usage of "Call" in .NET is like the usage of "Let" in
VB6; it's there but of little utility.

That's what we've been telling you dotnet trolls for years, Scotty. Now be a
good troll and stop pestering us on the VB6 newsgroup with your evangelistic
dotnet drivel.

And which you are, too.

Now be a good troll and go play somewhere else McCarthy. Perhaps you can bed
down with your new friend Scotty and have a little chuckle over your day's
trolling activities.
