    I've been called to help with so many bits of debugging where it "just wasn't working but there's no error message", and it turns out the above construct was masking a NullPointerException or similar...

    Static code analysis tools can help ensure this is stamped out, if you want to push that to the higher ups.

    Since I'm doing mostly c I don't handle exceptions that often. On my java project that fetches data from the internet the lib I use often throws exceptions because the http status code was 503. I know that's because website owners don't like people like me. I simply try again a few times. Is that a thing to do or would it be better if I did it another way. But yes, simply handling every exception by doing nothing is bad... And ugly... And I hope these people will die one day because they couldnt fix a bug because they didn't print an error.

    @Zhorian to be honest, Dynamics CRM has a quite verbose logging, if you activate it.
