All errors raised by Dynamics APIs should include a value in the Exception.Message property

Today I'm struggling to understand a web API fault with NO message content. It's uncommon, but not the first time I've seen an error with no message out of Dynamics internals. It's inconsistent with MS best practices https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/standard/exceptions/best-practices-for-exceptions#include-a-... and easily caught in a code review, so please, no more responses like the one below.
