revised Why is prefixing column names considered bad practice?
Just like prefixing column names, prefixing questions with a tag is frowned upon

comment What good reasons are there to capitalise SQL keywords?
Capitalizing SQL keywords I can understand. Most table declarations and queries I see capitalize EVERYTHING, table names and columns included.

comment Should the most recent date be named 'start' or 'end'?
There's also a case to be made for reading left to right. The order goes that way in more languages than the reverse. Both human and programming languages.

comment Should the most recent date be named 'start' or 'end'?
I agree with the desire to make something adequate and clear. I'm working with an old code base where any notion of "first" and "last" are labelled "a" and "z"... "Start" and "End" sound much more natural.

comment Should the most recent date be named 'start' or 'end'?
Simply "StartDate", "EndDate", and good documentation. There is a case to be made for documentation. A well made API has appropriate documentation. Furthermore, if you want to get cocky, throw an Exception if EndDate < StartDate, and document that too.

You're actually more dead on with several valid approaches. All I have are pointers and tips...

comment What are the consequences of having unnecessary references and usings?
Cleaning using's is a built in feature of VS 2010 (I think 2008 too). And ReSharper can do the references too. But yeah, before I'd embark on any large scale cleanup, I'd look into using a tool to do this for me.
