I think everyone will agree that the following boolean variable/property names are standard:
The important thing to note about boolean expressions is that they are stated and then evaluated as true or false. User is admin. False. You get the point.
However, lately I have seen an increase in booleans being formed this way:
Am I the only one who doesn't think this sounds absolutely ridiculous? You're not asking "Is user admin?" and then waiting for a yes or no. You're making a statement of "User is admin" and waiting for a true or false evaluation.
Microsoft has been doing this a lot lately, as well as the programming behind our Telerik web controls. The thing is that I don't understand where this is coming from. It never used to be popular, leaving me to wonder if it's just me who is noticing this or if this is a trend that is actually on the rise and, if so, what's the point?
