Since what I wanted to say had nothing to do with the thread on which I wanted to post,
i am posting my story here:

the same people who write bad goto's
are
the same ones who can't understand the concept of
Code:

PERFORM
   VARYING ...
     AFTER ...
      UNTI ...
        OR ...
        OR ...
        OR ...
        OR ...

(or appreciate the sculpured code)
or the concept of paragraphs/sections

My take is this:
they should not mix them
  • because for some reason
    • they won't accept the fact
      • that if you need PARAGRAPHs within your SECTIONS
        • Make the PARAGRAPH References
        • the same in every section!!!
