@stevefrost Oh, Steve - just confuse matters why don't you?

Also, no.

@professorsloth Where large businesses are concerned and different development strategies exist, it rarely is that simple.

@edtheprogrammer Not for the majority of javascript I've worked in. Like I said, how can this ever equal that? - in common vernacular they're opposites.

Remember, Crockford is just a man.

@gagege I guess my original point is related to a singleton based approach, where you would have a single reference to this. More the point was the generic term that's used in those cases.

Unless you have several different classes described in 1 file, you'd have no need to backtrack through hundreds of lines of code to determine what class the file you're currently in is.

@darkmantiscs If we are to adopt a convention, I personally prefer "self" over "_self", given the concept of private variables (which the underscore denotes) doesn't really hold when creating a reference within individual functions.

@mauris Nothing. That's my point - you should use "self".
