Comment (by sabernhardt):

 In addition to removing "always" from the first paragraph (both times),
 here are two suggestions for revising the section. If the information
 about the equal-sign operators is moved to the top, it would be
 unnecessary in the last paragraph.

 First sentence:

   When doing logical comparisons involving variables and either equality
 or identity operators (==, !=, ===, and !==), put the variable on the
 right side and put constants, literals, or function calls on the left

 Last sentence/paragraph:

   Avoid Yoda conditions for <, >, <= or >= because they are significantly
 more difficult to read.
