Mike: I can't speak for John, but I referred to what you wrote for reasons
that have nothing to do with VB.NET. What you wrote was in response to an
article about VB5. A few posts up, you proclaimed VB6 to be (in so many
words) the best version of VB. So my question is: How could you write
negatively about VB5, yet praise VB6 so effusively?
My theory is that you simply enjoy complaining: If MS had released a
syntax-compatible upgrade to VB6, I have little doubt you would have found
something about it to denegrate.
