Type Mocking Dangerous in Static Languages

Both Ian Cooper and Scott Bellware wrote excellent posts comparing dynamic and static languages, and how type mocking is dangerous when your using a static language (e.g. C#, VB.NET).  Scott said: "Type mocking might save your bacon when you have made poor design decisions along the way..."  I couldn't agree more!  Ian also talked about how dynamic languages leverage Duck Typing to overcome this danger.

Take a look at my friend's Duck Typing library - it's made to be used within a static language.  It too can "save your bacon" when you need to isolate legacy, tightly coupled code that you need to change and test.
