comment What syntax element do you hate most in a programming language you use frequently?
@Jeffery Hantin - That's actually completely different. You then have VB6 checking to see if your object actually exists every time it's called (it's declared as a New Collection), which could lead to significant overhead on large applications. I'd much rather manage everything myself.

comment How important are code formatting guidelines?
I have to disagree. I find nothing more irritating than an IDE that changes the formatting on its own. Why should I be letting it modify my code without my consent? It cuts out a decent portion of control that I like to have over my work.
