Discussion on: What is a Design Pattern?

Design patterns are like a variable in math. It's just a name used to represent some common implementation.

I actually strongly dislike it when people use a lot of pattern names when they describe a system. Even if I know the patterns, there can be some variation in implementation. So it's like they just gave me a math problem to work out.
