Hell Yeah Randall!! I completely agree, as this "Use the Source,
Duke" crap is also contrary to OOP. In OOP, as we all know, you
shouldn't have to worry about how the object actually works, you
should only care that it works given the proper input. In the same
way, one shouldn't not be forced to learn the internals of every
"tool" just to use it. As for another point, some of us aren't Star
Wars fans (myself included). [I know this is off topic, but I've
been rather partial to Star Trek myself...]
