I always knew it would come to this. I can see the case for using lambda functions in certain situations but I always regarded their introduction into C# as a bad move due to their potential for abuse. Sometimes adding N dimensions of abstraction is not a good move. I mean, shall we all start doing maths in base 90 just to use fewer digits? How about we join together n to the power of p math opeartors into newer short-hand operators, just to make that calculus even harder to follow? Just think - one hundred lines of calculus could be comprised into a single line!
