Note that there are semantic differences between, PUT and POST - PUT is idempotent, POST is not.

With cursors specifically: if you find yourself using one, you are probably doing it the wrong way. :)

comment Ordered enumeration: IEnumerable or Array (in C#)?
There is not an decorator/interface today that can tell you/warn users that a sorted collection is needed for your extension method. Especially for arbitrary data, how would you know (without a comparer function) whether the data was ordered or not?

comment Is using the new System.Tuple class bad design?
I have to say: every time I (or someone on our team) has used a Tuple as a type, I am constantly referring back to other parts in the code to remember what .Item1, .Item2, etc. are. For anything that is not completely trivial, create discrete classes. Give yourself a chance in the future to know what it is you were doing.

comment Pointless Code In Your Source
You also forgot: bad developers. Some people who are writing code, should not be, and good review processes don't exist in many shops.

comment Why am I seeing more boolean naming conventions where “is” is used as the first word in the variable (eg, IsUserAdmin vs UserIsAdmin)?
"I think everyone will agree that the following boolean variable/property names are standard" Well, there's your first incorrect assumption. I always use the 2nd way. (Actually, I don't include the noun, as I would expect an IsAdmin property on a User object, thus the "User" is redundant...)
