Bug, misleading direction or I'm totally missing something...

This code works fine when I put it in the REPL. I'm not sure what I'm missing here and why it's not seeing my boolean expression. Any body else, possibly with a sharper eye then me see anything wrong?

CodeChallenge.cs
int value = -1;
string textColor = null;

textColor = ( value < 0 ) ? "red" : "green";

Try it without the parentheses (but in actual code, they would not matter).

I'd say that's a bug. You might want to report it the Support folks.

Thanks Steven. That did the trick. I agree it still feels like a bug however. I'll go ahead and report this one.
