ASP.NET MVC Diagnostics Using NuGet

Sometimes, despite your best efforts, you encounter a problem with your ASP.NET MVC application that seems impossible to figure out and makes you want to pull out your hair. Or worse, it makes you want to pull out my hair. In some of those situations, it ends up being a PEBKAC issue , but in the interest of avoiding physical harm, I try not to point that out. Thankfully, in the interest of saving my hair, Brad Wilson ( recently featured on This Developer’s Life ! ) wrote a simple diagnostics web page for ASP.NET MVC that you can drop into any ASP.NET MVC application.

The below email thread is to shed light on behind the scene activities that happen within MSFT on many comments that are posted on many blogs.
