the fact that you declare a certain topic to be one of "most trivial
topics" does not really make it so.
Reading your sentence made my "troll sniffing sensor" turn red:-)
I understand everyone here has strong opinions but a little bit of
tolerance to other people coding practices could help.
For example, I would be very grateful to you if you could show how one
can replace "continue" and achieve a 10x speed up you mentioned.
