[fpc-pascal] Correct way for using TThread.ForceQueue?

I cannot remember why, but a long time ago when learning Delphi 5 or 6, I have learned not to call the destructor from within any method of the class, only from outside. If this is no longer true nowadays (or maybe, has never been true before), I'd like to use this solution.

Just to be sure we're talking about the same thing -- you think this code should work:

  TMyData = class 
    method: TMethodWithParameters;
    a: whatever;
    procedure Run;
 procedure TMyData.Run;
     method (a);

MyData := TMyData.Create;
MyData.a := ...;
MyData.method := @SomeMethodWithParameters;
TThread.Synchronize(NIL, @MyData.Run)

Why would this fail according to you ?

I have used this approach on multiple occasions.
