@dhivael Even in languages that have good reflection support I refuse to use it unless I absolutely have to, because I agree. It ends up in a big mess more often than it helps, and the time you spend figuring out why your random reflection breaks is better spent just avoiding it in the first place I feel.
yeah, same. using reflection is tantamount to writing in an untyped fragment, which is ... not great
@dhivael Nevermind that once you start using runtime reflection, your compiler can't help you once you mess up. Things that become convenient compile time errors now crash your program. Woo!
