FWIW, I thought (and wrote) that public variables were a bad idea long before FoxPro had OOP.

Public variables are an invitation to trouble. They are also, usually, a sign of bad design or of ignorance on the part of the programmer. (Ignorance of what depends on the situation, but sometimes it's parameters, sometimes it's custom properties, sometimes something else.)
