Seeing StringList does not tell you if List<string> extension methods apply. That's why "extension methods may apply". You have to look at the class declaration of StringList to know for sure. I maybe should have phrased as "List<string> extension methods may apply"

"extension methods don't apply." Where do you read this? I'm saying "extension methods may apply.

Off course. But you don't know that untill you inspect the StringList and see it derives from List<string>.
