Discussion on: Sh*tpost: can we stop saying "syntactic sugar"?

If I recall correctly, the C# language spec or some of Microsoft's engineers made the property syntax above as a means by which to entice VB programmers to start using the language. This was "sugar" for get_Property() and set_Property(string value) respectively, a common naming convention in Java for functions that represent properties. Great article by the way and I appreciate the positive vibes.
