comment Is MapReduce an architectural pattern?
Honestly, why does it make a difference to know if MapReduce is called an architectural pattern, a design pattern, or whatever?

comment microsoft visual studio stopped working 2012
Stack Overflow is probably not a better place to ask this, they are no replacement for MS technical support for the same reasons PSE is not. But I give you a hint for free: reinstall the whole damn thing. Consider upgrading to VS 2013.

comment Name/Fix for Production Code Whose Sole Purpose is to Facilitate Testing?
@Michael: your question is at risk of beeing closed, because it is in fact a mixture of two things - first, the question "what is the name of this ...", and second, some kind of rant against this particular solution which you obviously don't like. If you remove the rant part, chances are much higher that your question won't be closed.

comment What should an object be called that contains only setters and getters?
To whomever is suggesting to close this question as "primarily opinion based" - these different terms have a historical background / background from different schools of thought - there is nothing opinionated in their origin (only when thinking in terms of "which one is better", but that was not the question).

This is a workplace and a career issue, both things beeing off-topic for this site. And honestly, you have to clarify this with your team and with yourself.

comment Name/Fix for Production Code Whose Sole Purpose is to Facilitate Testing?
@RobertHarvey: I agree with Telastyn: in the shown example, the test-only constructor should probably not for "test-only", and the parameterless constructor shoud probably not depend on Something. But maybe just this specific example is flawed.
