And the even more dangerous transcription in The SEMPost by Jennifer Slegg although Jen has been around for a long time, too... (probably an editor's mistake).
This post is NOT about "Best Practices for 301 redirects", but a sure way to get your website's traffic and rankings into trouble.
*** Please do NOT follow Gary's advice ***
or promote this as the latest and greatest "website speed trick".
