Mutation can only be beneficial because of machine code and computer architecture.

In an ideal world, e.g. higher level language, mutation should be avoided unless the developer really enjoys debugging.

It's clear you're stubbornly convinced that the wider community is at fault for sharing best practices; that I can do little to change.

I like to think that I'm stubbornly convinced that I'm slighly frustrated by the unnuanced "best practices" I find on the web, that are blindly followed as the "only truth" by a bit too many developers.
