comment Terminology: Really Delete vs set IsDeleted (“soft delete”) flag
Just a few examples: In IMAP, the terminology is delete (soft delete) vs. expunge (hard delete). In Windows, the terminology is delete (move to recycle bin) vs. permanently delete (remove from recycle bin).

comment Pattern for a class that does only one thing
@StevenJeuris: Regarding the tags: Although the question itself is language-agnostic, (a) I had the feeling that the problem is more relevant to Java/.NET developers than, for example, Perl or PHP users, (b) the examples are written in pseudo-Java/C# and (c) I was particularly interested in the opinion of Java/.NET developers (since that's what I'm using), so I wanted to attract that crowd.

This sounds exactly like what I'm doing. Thanks, at least I have a name for it now. :-)

comment Pattern for a class that does only one thing
@StevenJeuris: I've stumbled upon this issue in various situations, but in the current case it's a method that imports data into the local database (loads it from a web server, does some manipulations and stores it in the database).
