    Maybe they think

    return false;

    Means it won't return, just carry on with the method? 😋

    But you could use that ;)

    Just add a label and a goto ...

    Those people are called "users" not "co-workers" ... peers know how to write functions.

    Sometimes I do that for debugging when I want a whole lot of a function skipped.

    Maybe they just forgot to undo it.

    function getVal() {
    return this.value;
    while(true) {

    Calm down people. Maybe his co-workers are in the sales or marketing team. He didn't specify that they were programmers.

    Depends, but yes typically if it's in the main body of a function it's all useless. How did they even get a job?

    I guess in JavaScript it is possible to write code after a Return Statement?

    I accidentally once wrote "return" instead of "break".

    Oh how we laughed/panicked over why data files were only being partially processed.
