It seems like a pretty simple question - how do I tell if my (X) is blank / populated.

It seems like the answer is to use isNull, but seems like its not clearly stated as such. And a few folks agreed that this seems to have changed over time.
So, to try and settle how things currently behave, i am going to test to see how these options behave in the scenarios above.

This is gonna suck. But actually solving this will be a great leap forward - for me anyways.
