Well said! It's not that I think those tools are pointless. I'm just not sure that they're particularly useful in "modern" stuff. And yeah... I understand that an employer may be asking about these things because large parts of their codebase are not modern. But you can be a pretty dang good dev without being knowledgeable about .call()/.apply().

Specifically, since I switched to fully-functional React w/Hooks, it's been more than a year since I even used this. And without this, there are a lotta ways to do the same things that you do with .bind()/.call()/.apply() - without using .bind()/.call()/.apply()
