comment Is this a correct situation to use a constant?
Carson63000 - I was referring to your use of IsNullOrEmpty. You're swapping one "magic value" for another. @Ramhound - Null is an acceptable literal in some cases, no question, but I do not believe this is a good example (using null or blank as a magic value).

In your example, null is simply another literal. The heart of this lesson is that literals are to be avoided.
