  1. Shouldn’t `showHiMessage = this.showMessage(‘Hi’)` in the last example be

    `showHiMessage (e) { console.log(‘Say Hi’, e); }`

  2. Hi- if a parent component re-renders, all of its children are also re-rendered, correct? Therefore, how does passing a closure as props to a child cause a performance decrease? Wouldn’t the Button component re-render every time SayHi component renders, regardless of if a closure is passed?

  3. I obsessive compulsively write clean and tidy HTML and I’m being forced to use react, and it seems like react was deliberately designed to piss me and others like me off. Why is it so messy?
