    Personally i think this thing sucks :) It does not do a good a job, and Microsoft own tool fxcop is pretty damn awesome…

    But that’s only my opinion. :)

    Considering this thing alerts on COMMENTS the noise level is far beyond anything useful. Example if you have a comment with the word “Select” as in “selects items from an array and orders by value” this thing logs it as a critical fault (potential SQL injection).
