@MatthewScouten sbi speaks 3, I know you weren't trying to be insensitive, but you should try to take a little bit more care.

comment Why is naming a table's Primary Key column “Id” considered bad practice?
@Chad I'll buy that. but now I'm assuming that Id in the class is mapped to the PersonId in the table. To each their own.

comment Why is naming a table's Primary Key column “Id” considered bad practice?
@Chad I find it superfluous. if I'm doing a join, c.id = m.manufacturerid, is ok with me. These columns are typically "mapped" to a class somehow, and to have a class with Person.PersonId makes me want to vomit...Yes,I am fully aware I have issues.

If you do this, I hate you for making me do extra typing!!!! The table's name is Person, what do you think the Id is going to be? Car? no, it's Person.

You have a table...it's called People, it's got a column, called Id, what do you think the Id is? A car? A Boat? ...no it's the People Id, that's it. I don't think it's not a bad practice and it's not necessary to name the PK column anything other than Id.
