Don't you hate when tools try to promote themselves in your work, especially if you paid for them?
Last night I was noavigatin around in Reflector when I stoped by the embedded resource
named System.Data.Odbc.OdbcMetaData.xml (in System.Data.dll 2.0). What I saw
was both familiar and a little aggravating.
<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>

... xml content here ...
In a way I also felt vindicated that MS is also a victim of this shameless, intrusive advertisement
after inflicting it on many others as well (I'm talking to you ASP.NET HTTP Headers).
BTW, thank you Visual Studio webforms designer for getting rid of those Meta tags you once put in my pages.
What other big offenders are out there? Free tools need not apply.
