C# - Final thoughts

[ #5042 ]
I finally finished my C# training course. Rather than go into a lengthy diatribe on the language, I'll have my friends Stan and Cartman from South Park fame sum it up for me:

Stan: "Gay"

    • South Park is comedy. Rude, obscene, offensive and disgusting. But still comedy.
      • And your point here would be?

        Yes, I know South Park is a comedy. And a bloody funny one at that. But I was brought up to believe that using terms like 'gay' as a perjorative is terminological inexactitude of a particularly abhorrent sort. It's marginally okay in a comedy where we're expected to laugh at the idiocy of the characters presented, but using it in real life, even with the 'trick' of distancing yourself by sticking it in quotation marks is offensive.
