Author: Andrew Grimm
Status: Open, Priority: Normal
ruby -v: ruby 1.8.7 (2010-08-16 patchlevel 302) [i686-darwin10.4.0] 

If you use a Fixnum as a symbol, you get a warning regardless of $VERBOSE


ruby-1.8.7-p302 > puts $VERBOSE 
false
 => nil 
ruby-1.8.7-p302 > "string".send(:reverse.to_i)
(irb):2: warning: do not use Fixnums as Symbols
 => "gnirts"
