Discussion on: Please don't "overchain" array methods

Ah, I see now. There's a reason why I didn't add the #beginners tag for this article. It is exactly for the reason you stated. I wasn't targeting beginners for this article. I was assuming that those who read it will most likely know how to optimize their algorithms themselves with what they learned from this article as a guide on how to do so. I suppose that was wrong of me to assume.

Also, I was actually thinking about discussing the space inefficiency of long chains of array methods, but I felt that doing so would have caused me to stray away from the actual message I was trying to convey throughout the whole article: longer chains mean more iterations.
