David Douglass .NET on My Mind

So I’m doing a little coding using reflection and the following exception is raised:

It is illegal to reflect on the custom attributes of a Type loaded via ReflectionOnlyGetType (see Assembly.ReflectionOnly) -- use CustomAttributeData instead.

I don’t get it so I pump the error message into Microsoft’s Live Search.  Live Search comes back with:

We did not find any results for It is illegal to reflect on the custom attributes of a Type loaded via ReflectionOnlyGetType (see Assembly.ReflectionOnly) -- use CustomAttributeData instead..

Not believing this for even 1 nanosecond, I run the same query using Google.  Google’s first hit points me to Kirk Evens’ MSDN blog where the exact messages appears in the entry!

the -- in the search appears to be an instruction to the search engine to do something... a search for "[Phrase A] -- [Phrase B]" means search for pages that contain [Phrase A] but do NOT contain [Phrase B].

Taking out one or both of the hyphens returns nearly identical results to the google results.

Google uses a similar feature with a single hyphen.
