Re: Or, more accurately...

"Programmers" that would use gotos, jumps and derivatives when there are other control structures available fall foursquare into the "not disciplined enough, not smart enough, or who simply can't be arsed to design and write code properly" category.

With the possible exception of PL360, I don't think there are a whole lot of structured assemblers. For those who must, or want, to work in assembler, jumps and branches are a necessary evil. I would expect that even those folks would have been bitten enough times so as not to write spaghetti with them.
