You are right (:
I didn't mention the classes that perform a service, but I see these classes as something palpable.
When I think about those classes I remember when I had to connect my application with someone else's, and we called this class "connectors". They perform a service, but they are an "object" that group various actions.
(when I talk about object, it's not in a "programming" way)
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
