And what I keep saying is that "implements" doesn't do anything for readability.


Yes it does because you arguments are bullshit. It says it "implements" the interface ... if you think this doesn't help readability ... you are a moron.

To summarise:

* Just check the methods .. if it doesn't compile "lol" you have done it wrong.

Sorry that isn't good enough.

I don't want to have to do, or want to trust other developers into doing that properly.

You keep on missing the point that code should be blatently obvious in what it does.;

Why don't you read the clean code book. Because it is becoming quite obvious you need to read it.

Yay! ad hominen attacks, because they make you sound like you know what you're doing!

I've read the book. It doesn't say anything about "implements" being a required feature for language readability.

Your issue is this: You're unwilling to learn. You're unwilling to adapt. Any benefit that could be gained is not worth changing your thought patterns for. If it's different then it's immediately not readable.

In other words, you're xenophobic. (yay for more ad hominen, but I'm done trying to help you.)

No you are unwilling to accept that I value readability.

I have pointed out multiple time where you have could have discussed this on a case by case comparison but you declined.

I declined you explanations based on simple keywords that explain things very bluntly and clearly. Yet you never addressed these concerns directly.

I don't mind if you say this is personal preference or what the community does. But it was "this is this way and you have to grep through methods like a numpty to see if something implements and interface".

I then get bored of this and I am direct enough to tell you exactly what I think and that it "ad hominem"

Whatever you like to believe...
