When creating an extension method and writing the params such as:  this string value when typing "this" I'm getting an intellisense type popup "You_should_not_call_base_in_this_method"

This isn't MonoMac that I'm using and it should not occur when creating extension methods IMHO.
Comment 3 Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2012-05-21 17:10:43 UTC
Mike, the problem is that we are not adding "this" to possible completions for static methods and this is allowed to create extension methods, see screencast
