Occasionally, I find plugging in a few lines of JS code in the Pre/Post sections can be useful but I’m not sure if I need to discontinue this habit!
We are using WLE 7.5.1.

Actually I don't think it will somehow decrease performance in any noticable level.
Sometimes it's the only way to make things work, otherwise I prefer not to use it.

Personally, I prefer to use it (not intensively though) for initialization mainly. I suppose it is a matter of opinion but thanks for your response.

Bottom line I see no reason to avoid these for simple initializations/logging, but imo they should not be abused.

The real problem is many people are lazy and just wind up using it because they don't want to reconnect lines.
There is little to no performance impact either way. If someone really measured I suspect there is a slight chance that the stand alone js block might perform ever so slightly more slowly if "save execution context" is turned on, but I would be amazed if that was a significant difference.
