You simply don't get it - saying "else" has some use cases - where do you people come up with this stuff. You really think I'm gonna give up using "else" based on someone's opinion? No thanks. I simply go with "else is a tool in the programmer's box, I use it when it makes sense". I don't deal in absolutes.

But yeah, feel free to stop using else, and then maybe after 5 years, re-read your code AND try to maintain it. Then we'll talk.
