Don't wait until next time. This is harmful, bad advice. You should add a big fat disclaimer to the article that so you made mistakes here.

Please look further down the comments for a comment by Jan Hasebos. It would address your perception regarding the iterated declaration, while also respecting the variable scope of the for loop.

Really, you'd be better off saying the "bad" example is ok, while you feel the "good" example is better.

I added some thoughts below Jan to expand on this.
