No more copy & paste in my IDE


This is day one of my new trial.

I have removed the key shortcuts for copy & paste from Visual Studio. I have seen too much of code duplication, some of it bears my very own signature. More often than not it is evil. I am aware that there are times copying might be fine. But the few times that this is the case, having to navigate to the menu should not be too heavy of a burden. However I hope that the time and inconvenience it takes to navigate there will trigger the thought process of what I am about to do, why I am doing it and whether there might be better ways.

Depending on the outcome I might re-add the shortcuts or else remove the menu options, too.
