Yep. You were wrong again! Now be a good troll and go play somewhere else.
You are absolutely no help at all to the posters in the VB6 group and you
are not wanted here.

Make you a deal Mike... You point out *exactly* what I've said in this
thread that is evangelistic about .NET and I'll do exactly as you suggest.

Oh, I get it. It's fine for you all to be the one's slinging insults, but
the second someone you disagree with does it...
You all just keep on making my point for me.

To the best of my recollection, "Let" was absolutly required as the property
setter, in other words, there was a valid reason for the keyword. Call
provides no such benefit in .NET. It accomplishes nothing.
