Actually I didn’t misunderstand. I was really just having a little coding fun at your expense because I disagree with your statement. Personally, I believe that anyone that states something along the lines of “never do xyz no matter the circumstance” (not your exact words, I know) has a flawed approach to design and development. Decision/branching is a normal part of what we do. Whether you use an if statement or some other form becomes trivial in the grand scheme. I agree that it is not always the best way but equally disagree that it is always wrong.
