re: I would also argue that overriding methods and magically changing behaviour is an anti-pattern. Patterns and anti-patterns are mostly fads anyway...

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

It's always instructive to read a different point of view. I think we may just have to agree to disagree on pretty much all of these points.

The behaviour you seem to be describing is exactly the sort of thing that I have seen lead to serious problems in many codebases over the years. Having said that, I can appreciate that my experience is certainly not the be-all and end-all when it comes to coding, and I have been around long enough to know that there is no such thing as never and always when it comes to coding and design, it's just a matter of trade-offs.

Thanks again for your insights.
