    Looks to me like the original programmer wasn't too sure whether == would work properly as an anonymous function-type thing (I don't know what specific language this is), and so used the return value of a single function call as the body instead.

    Maybe they had multiple enum options originally, then removed all but one. Still creating the list inside the loop is stupid

    I'll rationalise whatever I want to rationalise, dammit!

    Equals just does not look complicated enough... before you know it non-programmers start to understand what we are doing. So in future just add some complex looking code (that actually does not really do anything) to make your work look difficult. It will serve your paycheck well...

    And that is how Jacqueline removed The Speed-up Loop and got promptly removed from the project and fired, because performance of the program was now good enough.

    all good but enums are comparable with simple == so this could have been .filter(i -> i == payment method)

    If you know cSharp, then java is butter!

    Filtering on equality isn't enterprise-y enough. I mean, what's next? WHERE clauses in an SQL query? That is soooo bourgeois.

    This is obviously job security. Whoever wrote this obviously (hopefully) planned to come back at some point later, make a one-liner, and claim a large bonus for his work.

    No; WHERE clauses in a method name.

    They won't need WHERE clauses where they're going.

    He's a real No; WHERE man Sitting in his No; WHERE land Making all his No; WHERE names for methods

    Is Frenk now working with Jacqueline? I can see his code pattern. Frankenlambda

    TRWTF is that Arrays.asList(SRN.Type.PAYMENTMETHOD) compiles.
